Satisfaction: 2010 Bouchard Clos De La Mousse

2010 Bouchard Pere & Fils 1er Cru Beaune Clos De La Mousse Burgundy, France 13.5% ABV, $50

Deep, Earthy strawberry and spiced strawberry preserves form the anchor to this wonderfully layered nose. Immediately, and over time in the glass, solid details emerge: grilled meats dusted with a microscopic pinch of cocoa, Earthy mineral, warm dried herbs, dried rose petals and toasted hazelnuts. The palate is firm, medium weight and satisfying, showing charred Earth, dried strawberry, red cherry skins, dark mineral, clean tannins and a perfect amount of acidity. Finshes with good length and lingering notes of charred red cherry and flinty Earth. Solid from first pour to last sip; this with clearly age well. 93 Pts
