Bouchard Pere & Fils Beaune Clos de la Mousse 2017
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
|Brand||Bouchard Pere & Fils|
Tasted from bottle, the 2017 Beaune 1er Cru Clos de la Mousse reveals a generous bouquet of smoky dark fruit, rich soil tones and baking chocolate, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and gourmand palate, framed by ripe acids and rich but melting structuring tannins. From barrel, I characterized this wine as "open-knit and precocious," and that verdict holds true from bottle.
