Bouchard P&f Beaune Clos de la Mousse Premier Cru 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Outstanding: An exceptionally pretty and perfumed nose of both red and dark pinot fruit, earth and spice hints precedes attractively rich, silky and delicious flavors that possess a lilting mouth feel on the long, focused and balanced finish. There is good phenolic maturity and ample dry extract and I would say that this is the best Clos de la Mousse since the outstanding 2003 version...91" BH 04/13 "Bright, saturated dark red. Black cherry, wild herbs, licorice, mocha and spicy oak on the nose, along with a suggestion of dried berries. Sweet and full but with noteworthy sappiness to the red berry and cherry flavors. A ripe, sweet fruit bomb with round but firm tannins and lingering spices. These vines are planted along a north-south orientation, which protects them from the hottest midday sun...88-91" IWC 02/13
