Beaune Clos de la Mousse 2017

December 2019

93 Points

Wine Enthusiast

Ripe, juicy and packed with cherry fruits, this is a generous wine. It also has potential with its dense tannins and dry core. The wine needs time, so drink from 2023. Maisons and Domaines Henriot. Cellar Selection. —R.V.

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

Burghound.com

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.

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

James Suckling

This has a wealth of peach and gently nutty notes with a smooth array of fresh bread and hazelnut biscuits on the palate. Good freshness here with yellow peach to close.

Beaune Clos Saint-Landry Monopole 2017

January 2019

90-92 Points

Vinous

The 2017 Beaune Clos Saint-Landry 1er Cru is a two-hectare monopole that has been planted with Chardonnay since the 13th century. It has a lightly honeyed bouquet of acacia and brioche. The energetic palate is well balanced, with a fine bead of acidity and a chalky finish that exhibits just the right amount of salinity. –NM

Beaune du Château Blanc 2017

January 2019

89-90 Points

Vinous

The 2017 Beaune du Château Blanc 1er Cru comes from 10 hectares over five different Premier Crus. It has a pretty apricot blossom and white peach bouquet that opens nicely in the glass. The fresh palate is a little oaky on the entry – just 15% though, and that will be absorbed. The well-defined, commercially savvy finish shows a touch of brioche on the aftertaste. –NM

James Suckling

Peaches on the nose with an edge of spiced toffee. The palate has a very plush and fleshy feel with plenty of fruit delivered into the finish.

Beaune du Château Rouge 2017

April 2019

88-91 Points

Burghound.com

Here too the wood treatment is discreet though not invisible as it surrounds the gently spicy nose of dark berries, plum and lavender. The nicely ripe, round and supple medium-bodied flavors also possess a caressing mouth feel before terminating in a succulent, plum and bitter cherry-inflected finish. This should be approachable young if that’s your preference.

Beaune Grèves Vigne de L’Enfant Jésus 2017

January 2019

91-93 Points

Vinous

The 2017 Beaune Les Grèves Vigne de L’Enfant Jesus 1er Cru comes from the 3.91-hectare parcel on the mid-slope, currently undergoing piecemeal replanting. It has a wonderful, expressive bouquet of dark cherries, wild strawberry and crushed stone that is easily the best of Bouchard’s Beaune Premier Crus. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin and well-judged acidity, perhaps a little oakier than the Les Teurons but with more depth and precision on the finish. Great potential. –NM
