Thierry Violot-Guillemard Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Blanc 2018 75cl


Tasting Note

Perhaps the most famous Clos des Mouches is that of Joseph Drouhin, but don't pay a third more for their wine when this one is arguably better!


This is a fifth generation, 6.5 hectare estate, predominantly based in Pommard, with a few vines in Beaune, Meursault and Volnay. The estate is run by Thierry and Estelle Violot-Guillemard. Their son Joannès slowly taking over as Thierry eases into retirement. After so many lean years recently in the Cote de Beaune, the relative abundance of 2017 and 2018 required cellar improvements to accommodate the extra wine, though the finished wine disappeared very quickly.
