Clos de la Mouchere, a Monopole plot from Les Perrieres in Puligny Montrachet, is such a fantastic wine that no white burgundy lover should pass up tasting this great plot. If you’re not a fan of Clos de la Mouchere, then something is wrong, as it consistently ranked as the top 3 premier cru for all the blind tastings I’ve ever attended. 2017 was no different, quality improved vastly compared to 2015. The nose was a stunner, with smoky bouquet that you can see the smoke oozing out from the glass, along with very focused and jackfruit driven aromas. It’s a big wine by any 1er cru standard, slightly bitter, thick juice (almost like good phlegm). Slowly it evolved into soft buttery notes, chewy and elegant fruits dominated the long finishing.
