Beaune 1er Cru 2016 Clos de la Mousse - Monopole - Bouchard Père & Fils
The oldest trace of the Clos de la Mousse dates back to 1220, when it was bequeathed to the chapter of Notre-Dame de Beaune by Canon Edme de Saudon. During the Revolution, this beautiful vineyard was parcelled out. In the 19th century, the Bouchard family made various acquisitions in this delicate vineyard in order to obtain its exclusivity. The 3.36 hectares of this Clos were entirely brought together on April 13, 1872 with the acquisition of a last parcel of "20 ares 28 centiares". Since that date, the Maison Bouchard Père & fils has remained a monopoly of the estate. Today, one can still admire its surrounding wall.
