Tasting Note:

One of the most successful Clos des Mouches for years. Typically big and full of extract yet carried by a wonderful freshness. A wave of flavour hits the palate including nectarine, spiced bread, stones and citrus fruit. Powerful, characterful and ripe but with plenty of snap and crunch too.
