Domaine Berthelemot Beaune Premier Cru “Clos des Mouches Rouge”

France | 2017

£45 a bottle

Situated on the hill between Pommard and Beaune, Clos des Mouches gained its name from the site’s favourable exposition for keeping bees or ‘mouches’ as they are called locally. This gloriously fruity red offers smoky red berry characters on the nose whilst the palate is full-bodied, velvet smooth and spicy with flavours of ripe black cherries and a touch of earthiness.

Clos des Mouches is a famous old Premier Cru vineyard south of the town of Beaune on your way to Pommard. It gained its name from the historical term for bees (not flies) due to the favourable position of the slopes for bee keepers. The hives are all gone now but the name remained and with its beautiful exposure and soil structure it is one of those rare vineyards in Burgundy which produces both top quality white (Chardonnay) and red (Pinot Noir) wine from the same site. Berthelemot own two parcels and this wine is a blend of the two.


Domaine Berthelemot is relatively young Domaine, having been formed in 2006, but with mature vineyards in classic appellations of Beaune, Pommard, Monthélie and Meursault. The new custodians, Brigitte Berthelemot and winemaker, Marc Cugney are passionate about the multitude of expressions the Burgundian terroir offers. The Domaine practises “agriculture raisonnée” – farming practiced under various ecological guidelines – for which it was certified in 2009.
