Younger brother to the Clos des Mouches, the Côte de Beaune from the house of Drouhin is made with most of the grapes coming from younger vines in this famous vineyard, to which is added some Beaune Premier Cru. This "particular" Côte de Beaune is complex and refined, made from an assemblage of Pinot Noir vines from different limestone-clay terroirs. From the Clos des Mouches it takes its structure, its roundness, and its elegance; from the Premier Cru comes the long and subtle aromas of Burgundian fruit, which makes it the ideal companion for refined "terroir" cooking.
