Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From vines planted in 1947, the 2015 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches is excellent, confirming all the promise it showed from barrel with a lovely nose of red cherry, plum, raw cocoa, orange rind and grilled squab, subtly framed by new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, texturally expansive and pure, with velvety tannins, succulent fruit and excellent concentration and depth. An excellent Clos des Mouches.

This estate has been making wine in Pommard for 5 generations, farming organically since 1999, with 6.5 hectares now being cultivated. Thierry’s wife Estelle and son Joannès (named after a great-great-grandfather) are at his side at all moments of the vineyard year, which includes cultivating micro-organisms to vivify his composts. All fruit is hand picked and de-stemmed, then pressed in a pneumatic press prior to a four day cold maceration in open wood fermenters. All ferments begin naturally and continue for about 15 days at up to 33 degrees during which time pigeage takes place. The wine is settled before being racked to 225 litre low toast barrels (all staves are seasoned for three years) the new population is maintained at 20 per cent. Transfer of grapes and juice is done by gravity. The wines are racked once – just before the bottling takes place and are neither fined nor filtered. The Violot-Guillemard wines completely defy the old notion that Pommard is hard and needs ten years to soften.

While the city represents the epicenter of wine production in Burgundy, the term, “Beaune” also refers to the specific sub-appellation of the greater Côte de Beaune, whose vineyards climb up the pastoral slopes that border the city to its west. Originally founded as a Roman camp by Julius Caesar, the city of Beaune eventually became the seat of the dukes of Burgundy until the 13th century. Today it is home to top négociants such as Louis Jadot, Joseph Drouhin, Louis Latour, and Bouchard Père et Fils.

The appellation, dominated by Pinot noir plantings, represents a lovely and charming place to begin to understand red Burgundy. Its sandy soils create light and supple, floral driven Pinot noir. These wines are designed to be enjoyed within five to 10 years. The vineyards of Beaune span a broad swath of Premier Crus from Savigny-lès-Beaune to its border with Pommard.

Chardonnay acreage here has been increasing here in the more recent years.
