Third time I’ve tasted the 15 Mouches rouge from Drouhin. The reduction was present in every experience but this bottle is wack and almost undrinkable. It would be nice if these Côte de Beaune rouge wines were back in the $30-$40 price point where they belong. It’s hard to get an accurate assessment of the wine because it’s so heavily reduced. I was also hoping for a bit more ripeness here in the 2015 vintage. This is vegetal, tart and very dry. I’d also like to add that the reductive elements of this cuvée didn’t bother me in 2005, 2009 or 2010 vintages. Tasted 4/13/20

This had lots of ripe dark cherry, berry fruits with a smoky, spicy, earthy & mineral notes.
