Wine Advocate Notes
90 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "They 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Blanc escaped hail damage (for a change!). It has an attractive bouquet, quite floral in style with yellow flowers, orange zest and a touch of lemon peel. I like the energy here. The palate is well balanced with a slightly honeyed texture, a fine thread of acidity, quite dense and rich on the finish that caresses the mouth. I would like just a little more mineralité to show through by the time of bottling, and if so, it will merit a higher score. There is certainly potential here." 12/17
Vinous Media
91-93 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "(Drouhin's largest crop in this premier cru since 2012): Pale, bright yellow. Pure but subdued scents of white peach, pear, white flowers and brown spices. Thick and fresh on the palate, relying more on its mineral lift than on its acidity for shape and grip; still a touch of apple here from the lot that finished its secondary fermentation recently. A very young, fine-grained, rather delicate wine with a subtly rising finish--and built to age. Drouhin harvested this vineyard from September 23 into the beginning of October. " 9/17
James Suckling Notes
93-94 Points, James Suckling: "Right on the border with Pommard. This wine is from a 7-hectare plot of chardonnay within this climat. There's a spiced hazelnut edge across an array of white peaches and citrus fruits. It has a strong core structure with fleshy surrounds. Long, dense and smooth. Terrific. Drink or hold." 2/18
Burghound Notes
91 Points, Burghound: "Reduction once again flattens the nose though there is good freshness and obvious ripeness to the succulent, round and concentrated medium-bodied flavors that possess an almost juicy mouth feel before terminating in an vibrant, refreshing and sneaky long finish. This is somewhat awkward at present but my sense is that this will progressively harmonize as the sulfur is more completely integrated." 6/18
John Gilman Notes
94+ Points, John Gilman, View From the Cellar: "After getting pummeled by hail so often in recent vintages, I was very happy to hear that the Clos des Mouches missed most of the frost damage of 2016 and had a normal-sized and very high quality crop in this vintage. The Clos des Mouches Blanc is often of grand cru quality in my book and this is emphatically the case with the stunning 2016 version. The wine delivers a very refined aromatic constellation of lemon, apple, pear, chalky minerality, vanillin oak and a lovely, esthery topnote of bee pollen. On the palate the wine is pure, full and nascently complex, with marvelous mid-palate depth, laser-like focus and a very long, refined and vibrant finish. This is a stunning vintage of Clos des Mouches Blanc! (Drink between 2020-2045)" 11/17
