A fullish clear yellow. The nose is exquisite and approachable but it seems to have become even richer since bottling, while holding its balance without any difficulty. Clos des Mouches always offers a dense texture, on this occasion with a lemon curd note, balanced by a thread of lime to keep it all fresh. Really beautiful! Tasted: Burgundy—Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

Tasted from bottle, Drouhin's 2017 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Blanc is showing very well, offering up aromas of fresh pear, Meyer lemon and grapefruit zest that are still quite youthfully marked by a generous application of buttery new oak that experience shows will integrate nicely with a little age. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and textural, with racy underlying acids, a fragrant core of fruit and a long, penetrating finish. This is a very elegant, aromatic rendition of this emblematic Drouhin cuvée.—William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Offering a similar moreish personality as the 2017 Clos des Mouches Rouge, this white delivers an alluring palate of fruit, featuring pear tatin, fresh almonds, lemon zest and creamy custard. Though it has a bit more weight and lushness than the 2019, it still has a lifted touch helped by its appealing saline finish.Drinking Window 2021 – 2029-- Robin Kick MW, Decanter

The 2017 Beaune Clos des Mouches Blanc 1er Cru was picked September 1–6 in six different passes through the vineyard. It has quite a strict, conservative bouquet of vibrant citrus fruit infused with touches of linden and orange pith. The palate is quite assertive on the entry, conveying good weight. Like many white 2017s, it is lightly spiced, though this cuvée shows more marine influences and a tang of marmalade toward the persistent, intense finish. Very fine.—Neal Martin, Vinous Media

Tasting note: A whiff of matchstick is present on the pretty and notably floral nose of apple and soft wood influence. The rich and relatively full-bodied medium-bodied flavors possess both good punch and focused power if not the sheer size and weight of the Morgeot, all wrapped in a lingering and complex finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. Note that this could easily be enjoyed young if desired. Outstanding. –Allen Meadows, Burghound
