Bouchard Pere & Fils Beaune-Clos-de-La-Mousse 1er Cru 2016

Bouchard Pere & Fils Beaune-Clos-de-La-Mousse 1er Cru 2016

$125.00

The 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Clos de la Mousse is showing well, unfurling in the glass with notes of cassis, cherries, sweet soil tones and licorice. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, layered and complete, with a succulent but ripe core of fruit that cloaks its velvety structuring tannins, balanced by juicy acids. While its giving and generous profile is typical of the appellation, there is plenty held in reserve here, and at least five or six years’ bottle age will be rewarded.
