Just like its clay soil, the Clos de la Bussiere, is fleshy and powerful. It is a wine that has a real force. Dominated by black fruit (black cherry, blackcurrant), Clos de la Bussière is a tannic wine; maturity gives it length.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Clos de la Bussieres has a perfumed bouquet with a high mineral content: tight at first but unfolding with time, darker berry fruit mingling with incense. The palate is medium-bodied with entrancing energy and superb structure on the entry. Slightly more masculine than I was expecting, it has a stern but compelling finish that leaves you utterly satisfied. This has stupendous potential once in bottle.

Wine SpectatorOpulent and dense, with vivid acidity driving the black cherry, plum and spice flavors. This picks up a stony note on the long, muscular finish. Impressive, but needs time. Best from 2017 through 2030.
