Joseph Drouhin, Clos des Mouches Blanc, Beaune Premier Cru 2020

Chardonnay 100%


The name ‘mouches’ means flies. There were once bee-hives in this sun-drenched ‘clos’ (vineyard enclosure); the bees in the local dialect were called ‘mouches à miel’ (honey flies), hence the name Clos des Mouches. It is one of the first vineyards acquired by Maurice Drouhin (the founder’s son) in the 1920s. With great determination, he bought 41 different parcels from 8 proprietors. It is planted in equal quantities of red and white grapes, and both wines have achieved mythical status for the House of Joseph Drouhin. Celebration of its 100 years of history at Maison Joseph Drouhin in 2021. The grapes are harvested by hand and placed in open-work crates. If necessary, a careful sorting process is carried out. Slow pressing occurs in a pneumatic press, with the juice of the last press separated from the free-run juice. The juice is then transferred into wine barrels after a brief settling. Alcoholic fermentation, malolactic fermentation, and aging are processed in oak barrels, with the proportion of new barrels being around 20% to 25%. The aging period lasts between 16 to 18 months.
