They 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Blanc escaped hail damage (for a change!). It has an attractive bouquet, quite floral in style with yellow flowers, orange zest and a touch of lemon peel. I like the energy here. The palate is well balanced with a slightly honeyed texture, a fine thread of acidity, quite dense and rich on the finish that caresses the mouth. I would like just a little more mineralité to show through by the time of bottling, and if so, it will merit a higher score. There is certainly potential here. 90 points

(Drouhin`s largest crop in this premier cru since 2012). Pale, bright yellow. Pure but subdued scents of white peach, pear, white flowers and brown spices. Thick and fresh on the palate, relying more on its mineral lift than on its acidity for shape and grip; still a touch of apple here from the lot that finished its secondary fermentation recently. A very young, fine-grained, rather delicate wine with a subtly rising finish--and built to age. Drouhin ha
