MAGNUMS: RED

Red - BEAUNE, 1er Cru Clos des Mouches, Domaine Berthelemot. Burgundy (Magnum)

2010 BEAUNE, 1er Cru Clos des Mouches, Domaine Berthelemot (Magnum)

Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: Situated on the hill between Pommard and Beaune, Clos des Mouches gained its name from the sites favourable exposition for keeping bees or ‘mouches’ as they are locally called. This enclosed vineyard was made famous by the white wine produced by Domaine Drouhin, but it also produces fine red
Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Noir, matured in oak (25% new) for 12 months
Producer: A relatively young domaine established by the merger of two estates, Jean Garaudet and Yves Darviot, with mature vineyards in classic appellations of Beaune, Pommard, Monthélie and Meursault. Owners are Brigitte Berthelemot and winemaker, Marc Cugney. Their office is in Meursault
Vintage: 2010 A year of ripe and 'forward' wines
Food Match: Fine Burgundy is easily overwhelmed by rich sauces. Go for simply roasted red meats or try chicken, turkey or pheasant
Old Bridge Rating: Combination of the vintage and a modern approach to winemaking have made a remarkably open and delicious style. Yes, it will get better over the next 8-10 years, but it can be enjoyed with huge pleasure already
