Beaune 1er Cru "Clos des Mouches"
Domaine du Pavillon
Côte de Beaune
AOC Premier Cru
It was not the presence of flies ("mouches") but of bees and beehives in this area located south of Beaune, overlooking Pommard, that gave the vineyard its name. "Clos des Mouches" is one of Burgundy’s gems and is certainly in the same league as a Grand Cru. Indeed, its location on the slope gives this wine a great deal of precision and purity.
The notes of white flowers, honey and beeswax are telling signs of a high-calibre wine. The palate is racy and chiselled with incomparable length.
Honour this wine by savouring it alone to appreciate its full range of aromas and flavours. You may also enjoy it with fish or white meats cooked in cream.
