Bouchard Pere & Fils Beaune Premier Cru Clos de la Mousse 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2012 Beaune 1er Cru Clos de la Mousse (not Mouche!) is a monopole located toward Pommard where the soils are very shallow, around 25mm deep. The vines here are planted north to south rather than the orthodox east to west. It has very good definition on the nose with scents of mulberry and marmalade, floral scents emerging later. The palate is medium-bodied, lively and vigorous, hints of orange zest and marmalade once again infusing the red berry fruit. The tannins are fine and lithe with good delineation on the vibrant finish. This is very fine." -Wine Advocate (89-91 Points)
