Henri Germain Meursault Clos des Mouches Rouge 2020


“The 2020 Meursault Clos des Mouches Rouge wafts from the glass with aromas of rich berry fruit, warm spices, rose petals and sweet soil tones. Medium to full-bodied, rich and vibrant, its fleshy core of fruit is framed by ripe, powdery tannins and lively acids.” 90-92 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate


This should not be confused with the Beaune Premier Cru of the same name. Meursault’s Clos des Mouches is a tiny monopole belonging exclusively to Henri Germain and devoted entirely to Pinot Noir. It could be labelled as Volnay, as most reds from Meursault are, but Germain chooses to call a Meursault a Meursault. The half-hectare site lies near the Volnay border, due south of Les Santenots. The old Pinot Fin vines (planted in 1949) produce very low yields—under 25 hl/ha in a good year. It’s one of the few remaining walled vineyards in Meursault and the 2020 from here is superb, fleshy and layered. If only we had more!
