On the palate, the Clos de Mouches is very round, fine and elegant. The terroir provides notes of red fruit, ranging in the sweetness of strawberry to an almost tart raspberry note. While the wine can be enjoyed in its youth, the Clos des Mouches famously rewards patience as the wine easily ages for 20 or more years.
About the Wine Maker
One of Burgundy's best kept secrets is this domain, which has been run by Claudine Gaunoux since the late 1990s. Throughout the year, she works meticulously in the vineyards to prune and tackle potential plant and grape problems at the source. As a result, Claudine harvests only the best grapes, which are then vinified and matured in stainless steel tanks. 'Wood is make-up for bad wines' is her adage. The fact is that her wines - with pure fruit flavors and minerality - are different from others. And as the connoisseurs know, Gaunoux's wines can be stored for a brilliantly long time!
