Beaune Blanc Domaine 2020

January 2022

92

Decanter

This blend across a number of different village-level lieux-dits in Beaune has a nice citrusy edge. In 2020 the grapes were picked only in the morning because of the heat. The richness of the year comes through in ripe apple and hazelnut aromas and in the breadth on the palate, but the balancing acidity is actually quite interesting. Lovely wine at this level.

Beaune Blanc Domaine 2020

January 2022

88-90

Wine Advocate

From a parcel in lieu-dit Prevolles that Weber and his team grafted over to Chardonnay, using massale selections from Corton-Charlemagne, the 2020 Beaune Blanc exhibits aromas of citrus oil, pear, hazelnuts and clear honey, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample but precise palate. Concluding with a chalky finish, it's a fine cuvée.

Wine Spectator

Rich, evoking black cherry, blackberry, iron, tobacco and spice flavors. Solidly built, with a base of tannins, yet finds good equilibrium on the long finish. Very juicy and vibrant.

Lush and juicy, this red delivers plum, black cherry, sweet spice and toasty oak flavors on a soft frame. Dense, showing fine balance and length.

Wine Advocate

The 2019 Beaune 1er Cru Les Grèves Vigne de l'Enfant Jesus is showing beautifully, bursting from the glass with scents of raspberries, warm spices, plums and incense. Medium to full-bodied, sumptuous and enveloping, with an ample core of fruit and supple, melting tannins, it's immensely charming and gourmand. I can't remember an Enfant Jesus that tasted so good, so young.

Blue Lifestyle

Elegant, smooth cherry nose; smooth, silky, captures the definition of the pure Pinot experience, long, complex and deep with elegance and style.

Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus 2018

December 2020

Wine Spectator

Intense and tightly wound, this red displays a laser beam of cherry and berry fruit, with an underlying mineral element and steely structure. It's concentrated and long, yet needs time to reveal all its facets.

Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus 2018

October 2020

Wine Advocate

Revisited from bottle, the 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Les Grèves Vigne de l'Enfant Jesus is showing very well, unfurling in the glass with a brooding bouquet of dark berry fruit, ripe cherries, warm spices, baking chocolate and subtle soil tones. Medium to full-bodied, deep and muscular, it's rich and powerful, with ripe tannins and a voluminous core of fruit, concluding with a long, heady finish.

Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus 2020

January 2022

95

Decanter

Bouchard has nearly four hectares of this, perhaps the greatest site in the Beaune appellation. On a modest slope with east-southeast exposure in the heart of the terroir, this has produced a sophisticated, elegant wine in 2020, fermenting out to barely 13.5% alcohol with a pH between 3.5-3.6. The fruit is supremely luxurious and lush, yet underscored with plenty of nuance of spice, smoke, earth, and leather. The texture is dense and powerful yet superbly elegant - a triumph.

James Suckling

A refined nose for Beaune with raspberry pastry and red cherries with a violet-flower edge. The palate has delicate and fine tannins with great structural integrity. The length and balance are very convincing. Approachable red fruit at the finish.
