Terroir & Vineyard Practices:
- Don't Miss! Outstanding - 95 points - Burghound: "(from 60+ year old vines and the vineyard is a whopping 4 ha monopole within Perrières) In contrast to the nose of the Pucelles, here it's elegant, pure and airy with its layered aromas of essence of apple, pear and acacia blossom. There is excellent volume and mid-palate density to the mouth coating and caressing middle weight flavors that culminate in a lemony finish that is hugely long if perhaps not quite as crisp. This too is very stylish and a wine that should age gracefully for years. Drink 2031+.”- Allen Meadows, Burghound
- 95 points – Decanter: “The Clos de la Mouchère is a domaine monopole of nearly 4ha. The vines date to before the Second World War and have not been replanted since. It is located midslope and consistently provides a lovely wine of exquisite balance and elegance. Here the accent is on ripe apple, spice and buttery aromas. The texture is broad and rich, but superbly elegant and well balanced. The finesse of the results in such a warm year are reassuring. Drink 2022-2034.”- Charles Curtis, MW, Decanter
- 95 points- Wine Advocate: “The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Mouchère was showing superbly, unfurling in the glass with scents of pear, citrus oil, orange blossom, dried white flowers, toasted nuts and iodine. Medium to full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it's concentrated and textural, with tangy acids, chalky extract and a long, saline finish. Drink 2025-2045.”- William Kelley, Wine Advocate
- (91-93) points- Vinous: “The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Mouchère 1er Cru sports just a slight reduction on the nose, but it still manages to convey energy and mineralité. Maybe it just lacks a bit of personality? The palate is well balanced with good grip and substance. A little spicier than other Puligny 2019s, there is a touch of white pepper and bitter orange peel that lends tension and complexity on the finish. Very fine. Drink 2023-2035.”- Neal Martin, Vinous
