Description

Le Clos des Mouches is easily one of the most famous and important premier crus in Beaune. Although fine examples of both red and white wines are made here, it the Chardonnay that is truly the star.

In the local dialect, mouche translates to 'honey bees,' an homage to the bees that help pollinate the vines and are drawn to the ripe, sweet grapes of Beaune.

Tasting Notes


EYE:
Star-bright, pale golden colour with lemon yellow reflections
NOSE:
Powerful, intense aromas of Meyer lemon, granny smith apple, Asian pear and quince jelly, with delicate citrus blossom and honeysuckle notes.
MOUTH:
An opulent yet elegant Chardonnay worthy of its 1er cru status, the layers of fruit and flowers persist on the palate, accompanied by slight vanilla, baking spice and brioche from oak and a long mineral driven finish.

Food Pairing

Steamed monkfish
Tiger prawns with ginger and garlic
Braised bean curd
Singapore-style chilli lobster
