Boire ou garder :
Exquisite in 2002, and for seven years after
This vineyard on southern-facing slopes was formerly where local beekeepers kept their hives. This gave rise to the name "Clos des Mouches", referring to the old popular name for bees, "mouches". Here, Pinot Noir grapes produce aromatic, lightly-coloured wines, with notes of ripe cherries joined by spices and smoke. On the palate the wine is equally complex, with a roundness and elegance that counterbalances the tannic structure which promises long aging for a deep and generous character. An exclusive of the house of Drouhin, this is the black diamond of Beaune's first growths.
