92-94 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "The 2019 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches (Domaine) is deep and complete, unfurling in the glass with aromas of plums, cherries, dark chocolate, warm spices and petals. Medium to full-bodied, layered and fleshy, it's sumptuous and vibrant, with powdery structuring tannins, bright acids and a broad, expansive finish. Finer-boned than the ripe, powerful 2018, it's very promising. (Jan 2021)"

92-94 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2019 Beaune Clos des Mouches 1er Cru (Rouge) contains 30% whole cluster. Dark berry fruit commingles with wet clay and light minty aromas. The palate is well balanced with a silky texture, a little "fatter" than the Beaune Grèves, with hints of licorice toward the persistent and very saline finish. This deserves four to five years in bottle, but it has a long, prosperous future ahead. Drink: 2023-2040. (Dec 2020)"

91-94 points Jasper Morris, MW: "30% whole bunch vinification, with just the best fruit selected, the remainder being declassified into the Côte de Beaune bottling. Mid purple, not the deepest, yet the nose is heady and exciting, properly ripe grapes, but in balance. Quite striking, indeed interestingly powerful, with lovely length of aftertaste. Powerful and fine at the same time. (Dec 2020)"

91-93 points/'Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "A slightly riper array is comprised by liqueur-like notes of plum, dark cherry and a plethora of floral elements. The medium weight flavors are quite rich yet also relatively fine with solid delineation that carries over to the balanced and lingering finish. This could use more depth but there is sufficient potential for that to occur. Drink: 2029+. (Apr 2021)"

Bill Nanson (Burgundy Report): "A large-scaled nose, darker-red fruit. Mouth-filling again, but the flavour is much more airy, almost floral – a nod to Chambolle for sure. The tannin is present but there’s no grain here. Weight but also elegance in one package. Today I’d still take the Cras but that’s a style, not a quality, decision! Bravo! (Dec 2020)"
