92 points "91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Drouhin's 2010 Beaune Clos des Mouches is a gorgeous wine endowed with considerable depth and richness. Suave tannins provide the backdrop for the fruit in this layered Clos des Mouches. Today the aromas and flavors are a bit reticent; instead it is the wine's texture than stands out most. I will not be surprised if the 2010 ends up considerably better than this note suggests. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. This is an impressive showing from Drouhin. In my view the 2010s are more interesting and transparent than the 2009s. Veronique Drouhin describes 2010 as a vintage with long-term aging potential, which certainly seems to be the case. (2/ 2012)" Best 2017-2029

91 points "91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound A beautifully layered nose is remarkably complex as it combines notes of petrol, mineral reduction, lemon zest, white flowers and a hint of wood. There is reasonably good detail to the relatively soft and forward flavors that possess fine energy and excellent length. I wouldn't call this a classic Drouhin Clos des Mouches but it is lovely all the same. (6/ 2012)"

92 points "92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Moderately saturated bright medium red. Pretty aromas of red raspberry, flowers and crushed stone. Juicy and very pure but youthfully imploded, with a penetrating minerality contributing to the impression of inner-mouth tension. Lovely delicacy and finesse here. The very long, sappy, echoing finish perks up the taste buds. Still a baby, and wonderfully light on its feet. 92(+?) points (4/ 2013)" Best 2016-2025
