Drinking well now and for six years
The Chardonnay of Clos des Mouches grows on a lightly stony slope which was formerly a site where beekeepers tended their hives. Perhaps by association the wine is characterised by honeyed aromas, with almond extract and young citronella; after several years' ageing, hazelnut and toasted almond notes begin to appear. Fresh and fiery in its youth, this is a wine made for ageing, a perfect accompaniment for sauced fish and shellfish. This rare and fine wine is among the most complex and full-bodied of the Côte de Beaune, land of the greatest white wines.
