Tasting Notes

JancisRobinson.com – 17+

Shy nose with only a hint of raspberry and cranberry fruit, plus generous oak. Fine tannins that give grip on the finish, and there’s a strong soy and iodine savoury character that lingers too. Pretty tart and restrained. Almost eye-watering in its tension. (RH) [06/02/2021]

Vinous – 88

The 2016 Beaune Clos des Mouches 1er Cru feels a little static at the moment compared to its peers with plush, slightly confit-like red fruit and the oak conspicuous at present. It’s not overbearing, just a little "trop". The palate is medium-bodied with juicy ripe, black fruit laced with charcoal and brine notes, gentle in grip but it might well be amidst an awkward phase. I would like to revisit this in a couple of years time. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting in Burgundy. [Neal Martin, 22/10/2019]

Robert Parker – 93

Tasted from bottle, the 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Rouge has deepened and fleshed out since I tasted it from barrel, and today its superb potential is impossible to dispute. Wafting from the glass with a rich bouquet of raspberries, black cherries, rich soil tones and spices and deftly framed by toasty new oak, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fleshy but vibrant, with a layered, textural mid-palate, velvety tannins and a long, precise finish. This is a serious, broad-shouldered Clos des Mouches that will offer a broad drinking window. [William Kelley, 12/02/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2045
