Bouchard Pere & Fils Beaune Clos de la Mousse Premier Cru 2019
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
|Brand||Bouchard Pere & Fils|
Fruit aromas combined with light toasty notes on the nose. Both fleshy and refined, Clos de la Mousse reveals its charms with delicacy.
Pair this wine alongside white meat dishes or grilled poultry.
This shows spice, earth and rust character with some chocolate. It’s medium-bodied with roundness and freshness. Yet, there’s decadence and meatiness at the end. Drink in 2024.
This red is silky in texture and intense, yet its black cherry and blueberry flavors are restrained. Harmonious and long, with toasted spice and mineral accents adding depth. Needs a few years. Best from 2023 through 2035.
Fermented with one-third whole clusters and aged in one-third new casks, the wine is delightful, with a ripe, concentrated blackberry/cherry fruit, a floral edge and a good mineral expression. On the palate the texture is silky, but there is rewarding density here as well. A top premier cru.
Revisited from bottle, the 2019 Beaune 1er Cru Clos de la Mousse is performing brilliantly, bursting with aromas of sweet berry fruit, warm spices and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, sumptuous and enveloping, with melting tannins and an ample core of fruit, it's seamless and charming, concluding with a long, expansive finish. This is as fine a young Clos de la Mousse as I've ever tasted.
