Bouchard Ainé et Fils Beaune Premiere Cru Clos de la Mousse 2006

Member Review by outback:

This was a nice, light wine that we really enjoyed with some bread/assorted cheeses, strawberries, blueberries, and chocolate dipping. Picked up at local HEB for $13.95+tax. The pairing with the manchego and chocolate was really excellent. Nose --- well, I'm not an expert by any means but it almost reminds one of a ruby port...but it is a nice, refreshing yet dry, and best of all not an overpowering wine. I'll probably buy a couple more for the cellar, which is more that I can say for other French wines that we've had lately and had bad luck with -- even from the 05 vintages, being too musty or earthy or just overall not that great.

Nice, easy strawberry confit nose with barnyard notes. Deep burgundy color - as befits a burgundy - with good, well integrated tannins upon entry laced with cooking spices, plum and strawberry. There is just a touch of sweetness. All in all, for a village wine, this is a pretty good number - with potential for aging a further 3-5 years under good cellaring conditions.

A lightly spiced nose of fresh red berry fruit aromas that carry earth and underbrush notes that merge into light to barely medium weight flavors that possess good detail on the dusty and vibrant flavors that have just a touch of acidity poking through on the backend. Burghound.

Light ruby. A very pretty and very pinot nose that displays only nuances of earth and game before introducing detailed, pure and delicious light to middle weight flavors that possess reasonably good depth and length on the dusty finish that offers a ...
