World's Lowest Price, Drouhin Clos des Mouches Blanc 2017

Beaune Clos des Mouches 1er Cru is one of the major terroirs in Beaune with both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir planted there, and Joseph Drouhin is the largest owner. Both the reds and whites play a vital part in Joseph Drouhin's portfolio in which the reds are elegant and refined but never lacking complexity, and always benefit from bottle aging to give the completeness to the wines; while the whites are not as well known as Pinot Noir, it offers a distinct uniqueness and always outperform the reds. Their Clos des Mouches Blanc is an insider wine that is not familiar among everyone, but Vinous’ Stephen Tanzer has commented that “the Clos des Mouches Blanc has taxed my lexicon of descriptors—and that’s a good thing” during a vertical tasting in February last year.

A recent release and a brilliant Chardonnay to collect in fantastic vintage of white like 2017, Joseph Drouhin Clos des Mouches performs excellently and received 91-93pts from both Stephen Tanzer and Neal Martin, also 18.5 out of 20 pts from Jancis Robinson and received beautiful comments.

91-93pts Stephen Tanzer

Bright light yellow. Deeper-pitched on the nose than the Meursault Perrières , conveying aromas of peach, iodine, soil, spices and sexy oak. Then quite dry and precise on the palate, with its pungent iodiney minerality contributing to an impression of sharp delineation. This is still youthfully locked up and needs fattening. More about spices, minerals and soil than fruit complexity but the vibrant finish delivers an exhilarating light touch. This singular wine combines the tension and structure of a white Corton with the aromatics of a Montrachet.

91-93pts Neal Martin

The 2017 Beaune Clos des Mouches Blanc 1er Cru was picked September 1–6 in six different passes through the vineyard. It has quite a strict, conservative bouquet of vibrant citrus fruit infused with touches of linden and orange pith. The palate is quite assertive on the entry, conveying good weight. Like many white 2017s, it is lightly spiced, though this cuvée shows more marine influences and a tang of marmalade toward the persistent, intense finish. Very fine.

91pts Allen Meadows

A whiff of matchstick is present on the pretty and notably floral nose of apple and soft wood influence. The rich and relatively full-bodied medium-bodied flavors possess both good punch and focused power if not the sheer size and weight of the Morgeot, all wrapped in a lingering and complex finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. Note that this could easily be enjoyed young if desired.
