Beaune Clos de la Mousse Monopole 2017

January 2019

90-92 Points

Vinous

This is showing just a little reduction on the nose, yet there is plenty of juicy red berry fruit laced with brown spices here that feels well defined. The poised, focused palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a caressing, almost Vosne-like finish that is utterly seductive. –NM

Beaune Clos de la Mousse Monopole 2017

February 2019

90-91 Points

James Suckling

The nose has a very flamboyant feel with plenty of brambly, darker cherries and spices. The palate has a very pure feel with velvety tannins, carrying red to dark cherries.

Beaune Clos de la Mousse Monopole 2017

April 2019

88-90 Points

This is the first wine to display any appreciable reduction to this point along with moderately prominent wood influence. Otherwise there is evident ripeness to the very rich and equally succulent medium weight flavors that deliver fine length if only moderate depth.

Wine Spectator

A ripe, juicy version, beautifully integrated and unfolding cherry and currant flavors gracefully. Spice, earth and mineral notes chime in on the long finish.

Black cherry and plum notes permeate this dense red, made approachable thanks to a round profile and open texture. Should be better in a year or two, but the lush fruit makes this enjoyable now.

Wine Spectator

Black currant and violet are the hallmarks of this tightly wound red, with vanilla and sandalwood accents entering the fray as this builds to the long, energetic finish. Ends with a vein of mineral and echoes of spice.

A pretty, elegant red, exhibiting cherry, strawberry, mineral and spice flavors, backed by a firm structure. Balanced in the crisp style of the vintage, with fine length and purity.

Once again there is ample wood present on the perfumed, cool and again airy aromas of both red and dark cherry that are liberally laced with spice elements and a discreet soupçon of earth. Once again there is excellent volume and the same sleek mouth feel to the medium-bodied flavors that also exude a fine minerality onto the delicious and sappy finale where the underpinning tannins are not quite as ripe.

Vinous

Bright red-ruby. Sexy scents of red- and blackcurrant, iron and tobacco, plus a whiff of animal fur. At once sweet and salty, displaying a fine-grained texture to its black cherry fruit. I find this gentler and more velvety than the Beaune du Château, with sweeter tannins.
