The oldest trace of Clos de la Mousse dates back to 1220, when it was bequeathed to the church of Notre Dame de Beaune by cannon Edme de Saudon. During the Revolution, this fine vineyard became divided up. During the 19th century, the Bouchard family bought several vineyards of this delicate cru to obtain exclusivity. The 3.36 hectares of Clos de la Mousse were brought together on the 13th April 1872 with the acquisition by Antonin Bouchard of the last vineyard of “20 ares 28 centiares” This Premier Cru has been the monopoly of Bouchard Père & Fils ever since. The surrounding wall can still be seen today. Fruit aromas combined with light toasty notes on the nose. Both fleshy and refined, Clos de la Mousse reveals its charms with delicacy. Good ageing potential.
