Vinous Review: 90-92 points
"The 2017 Beaune Clos de la Mousse 1er Cru comes from a 3.36-hectare terraced monopole, located on dense red clay, that suffers little dryness and tends to retard maturation of the fruit. 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. This comes recommended."

James Suckling Review: 90-91 points
"The nose has a very flamboyant feel (25 per cent whole clusters) with plenty of brambly, darker cherries and spices. The palate has a very pure feel with velvety tannins, carrying red to dark cherries. Drink or hold."
