Beaune 1er Cru Clos Des Mouches Rouge Chanson 2016
Beaune 1er Cru Clos Des Mouches, Rouge, Domaine Chanson, Cote de Beaune, Burgundy 2016
100% Pinot Noir aged in oak for 14 to 18 months
The 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches wafts from the glass with a classy bouquet of wild berry fruit, rose petal, spices, and rich soil tones. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and fleshy, with a sapid core of fruit, powdery tannins and mouth-watering acids.
"Excellent floral fragrance – open, spicy, expressive. Pure red fruits too – redcurrant, cranberry. Smooth and rounded in texture, yet with enough tannin to support long ageing. Superb length." (RH) Richard Hemming MW 17.5/20 jancisrobinson.com
