Tasting Note:

A bold and broad as ever but with a tactile, svelte quality you don't often find in young Clos des Mouches. Surprisingly open and floral, the mid palate offers a welcome bit of crunch and freshness to the kirsch and raspberry liqueur fruit. Juicy, ripe and slick. Fermented with 25% whole bunches.
