This bottle is money. Silky smooth. Very well balanced wine. Every bottle from this case I bought tastes different. This one tastes like Oregon Pinot and doesn鈥檛 have all the weird rubbery aromatics. Goes great with Tango & Cash. 馃槀 7/24/20

Third time I鈥檝e 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 C么te de Beaune rouge wines were back in the $30-$40 price point where they belong. It鈥檚 hard to get an accurate assessment of the wine because it鈥檚 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鈥檇 also like to add that the reductive elements of this cuv茅e didn鈥檛 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.
