Premier Cru Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus

January 2015

89-91

Vinous

Good dark red. Black cherry, licorice and bitter chocolate on the nose, plus a whiff of menthol. Juicy and deep, showing excellent definition and lift to its black cherry, chocolate and mineral flavors. Very good energy here, with the tannins avoiding dryness.

Prominent wood pushes the otherwise markedly ripe array of somber and earthy dark berry fruit liqueur-like aromas to the background.. There is good energy to the detailed yet impressively rich flavors that are shaped by firm tannins on the long, deep and complex if slightly dry finish that flashes a hint of bitter cherry. This isn’t imbalanced per se at present but it will clearly require time to better harmonize.

Vinous

Bright ruby-red. Liqueur-like ripeness to the aromas of purple fruits, bitter chocolate and cotton candy; smells very concentrated. Plush and large-scaled, displaying outstanding density and a seriously mouth filling quality to its dark cherry and dark chocolate flavors. A very tactile, broad Beaune wine with a finish that's ripely tannic and very long--and not at all over the top. The best of an impressive set of Beaune premier crus in 2015.

Wine Spectator

Lush and vibrant, exuding cherry and blueberry flavors, this ripe red is inviting yet deceptive in terms of structure. The tannins are wrapped in flesh and fruit for now, but should provide support over the next 10 to 15 years.

Wine Spectator

This rich version is tinged with smoke and spicy oak notes, set against a core of cherry fruit. Firms up on the finish, where hints of licorice and spice linger. This remains fresh and balanced, gaining suppleness with air.

Wine & Spirits

This 9.7 acre parcel in Beaune Grèves produces one of Bouchard's most renowned wines, one that often takes ten years to fully develop. It's a wine with grand cru stature, treated to between 30 and 40 percent new oak. The elegance and delicacy of the wine is immediately apparent, though the flavors are shuttered behind the tough austerity of the tannins. The flavor concentration and detail becomes more expressive with air - a scent of rose petals, a buzz of earthy spice, a precise and lithe shape to the structure. A lovely, ethereal 2013.

Sweet, sappy cherry and raspberry fruit is the hallmark of this supple red. Spice and leafy, woodsy accents chime in on the long, balanced finish.

Stephen Tanzer IWC

Good bright, deep red. Black fruits, dark chocolate, menthol and spicy oak on the nose and palate. At once plush and vibrant, with a stony note contributing grip. Quite concentrated for this cuvee, which is usually more delicate. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and lovely length.
