Bouchard Pere et Fils Beaune Clos de la Mousse Premier Cru 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This offering here is from Bouchard's famed Clos de la Mousse which is a monopole (it's completed owned by Bouchard and not shared as many are) and is one of the top vineyards in all of Beaune. "This is also quite ripe with aromas of spiced cassis and plum that lead to fleshy and generous medium-bodied flavors that possess good richness and a seductively textured mid-palate, all wrapped in a mouth coating finish that delivers fine length. There is a subtle touch of minerality and the very firm tannins are clearly phenolically ripe plus with the wine's solid balance, this should be capable of aging well."burghound.com

As early as 1866, Dr Jules Guyot in his book on viticulture of the centre north of France, wrote that: " the essence of the fine wines of the Côte d'Or, is the grape variety, the Pineau Noir or Noirien for the red wines; the Pineau Blanc or Chardenet for the white wines ".
