Beaune Grèves Vigne de L’Enfant Jésus 2017

April 2019

90-93 Points

The sleek, intense and well-defined medium-bodied flavors exude evident minerality onto the much more complex and persistent finale where the wood telegraphed by the nose reemerges. This is really quite good though note that my predicted range offers the benefit of the doubt that the generous wood will ultimately be successfully integrated.

Beaune Grèves Vigne de L’Enfant Jésus 2017

January 2019

91-93 Points

Vinous

The 2017 Beaune Les Grèves Vigne de L’Enfant Jesus 1er Cru comes from the 3.91-hectare parcel on the mid-slope, currently undergoing piecemeal replanting. It has a wonderful, expressive bouquet of dark cherries, wild strawberry and crushed stone that is easily the best of Bouchard’s Beaune Premier Crus. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin and well-judged acidity, perhaps a little oakier than the Les Teurons but with more depth and precision on the finish. Great potential. –NM

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.

Remarkably and seamlessly complex, with a polished and refined core wrapped in silky raspberry and blueberry flavors, accented by savory spice and orange zest hints. The long finish builds toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2025.

Wine Spectator

A bright, finely tuned Blanc de Blancs, with a subtle tang of salinity and flavors of lemon meringue pie, glazed apricot, pink grapefruit granita and blanched almond. Creamy and mouthwatering, with a lingering smoke-tinged finish.

Vinous

Pale yellow-gold. Fragrant melon, white peach and tangerine aromas are complicated by smoky lees and floral honey. On the palate, supple melon and pit fruit flavors are energized by smoky minerality. Shows a gently sweet touch and finishes with excellent cut, clarity and persistence.

A bright and lively blanc de blanc, with a clean-cut mineral note underscoring the poached apple, toasted almond, apple blossom and candied ginger flavors, accented by a soft and satiny mousse.

Wine Advocate

The Henriot NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Disg. 2/2012 is redolent of honeysuckle, heliotrope and linden flower, fresh apple and yeasty brioche, with hints of sea breeze, lemon, grapefruit, and toasted nuts anticipating the salinity and bright citricity allied to piquancy that emerge on the creamy yet vivacious palate. The finish enhances this cuvées patisserie-like personality, evoking quince- and nut paste-filled buttered pastry drizzled with lemon cream, an impression no doubt – and appropriately so – reinforced by ten grams of residual sugar.

A markedly floral-infused nose offers up primarily notes of green apple and lemon zest along with background wisps of yeast and quinine. There is very good complexity to the vibrant, even racy flavors that possess a moderately fine effervescence before culminating in a crisp, moderately dry and citrusy finish. This is really quite good and I like the style.
