Here too strong reduction and enough wood to notice render the nose problematic to read. There is excellent verve to the attractively textured and lightly mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that exhibit excellent intensity and detail on the long, bone dry and strikingly persistent finish. This is terrific. Tasted: Jun 11, 2013. Drink: 2018+

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. I am unsure about this bottle of Drouhin’s Beaune Clos des Mouche '11, which tasted better in the past. It exhibits some brett on the nose that slightly muffles the red berry fruit, rendering it a little rustic in style. The palate is medium-bodied with solid, ripe tannins. There is plenty of chewy red fruit here, although it feels quite stern on the structured finish that tapers off a little rapidly. I suspect another bottle would perform with more aplomb. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014

Founded 130 years ago and still family owned, Joseph Drouhin is one of the most important domaines in Burgundy. With vineyards covering close to 90 different appellations, Drouhin is passionate about using a biodynamic approach to produce top quality terroir-driven wines. From the 2009 vintage onward, their entire Burgundy holdings have the ECOCERT organic certification.The Drouhins favour a light-touch with their winemaking, letting the fruit do the talking. Their wines are bottled earlier than most producers in the region in keeping with their desire for fruit forward wines.
