The palate has a very dense core of dark cherries and plums, as well as deep-set tannins. Smooth and powerful. This is in great form in 2016. Try from 2022. - Nick Stock

(91-93) Very generous wood and menthol influence fights with the otherwise elegant aromas of red and dark cherry where additional breadth is present in the form of spice and earth. The dense yet attractively refined flavors possess a lovely, even caressing mouth feel before offering outstanding depth and length. Note that my predicted range assumes that the wood treatment will eventually be integrated as it is borderline heavy-handed today.

Wine Spectator, April 2019
A ripe, juicy version, beautifully integrated and unfolding cherry and currant flavors gracefully. Spice, earth and mineral notes chime in on the long finish. Best from 2022 through 2037. 200 cases imported.–BS

Offers good density but little easy sweetness to its medicinal black cherry and herb flavors. A suggestion of slightly green acidity gives the wine a penetrating character. Finishes with good length and lift but this youthfully clenched wine is a bit ungiving today and its dusty tannins will require some bottle aging.

The 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Clos de la Mousse is showing well, unfurling in the glass with notes of cassis, cherries, sweet soil tones and licorice. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, layered and complete, with a succulent but ripe core of fruit that cloaks its velvety structuring tannins, balanced by juicy acids. While it's giving and generous profile is typical of the appellation, there is plenty held in reserve here, and at least five or six years' bottle age will be rewarded. - William Kelley
