Bouchard Père & Fils | Burgundy, France
Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus 2019
The 2019 Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus 1er Cru has by far the best aromatics of Bouchard's somewhat awkward Beaune Premier Crus, delivering bright red berry fruit, crushed stone and final delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with lithe tannins, and quite peppery on the entry, but shows more freshness and terroir expression compared to Les Teurons or the Clos de la Mousse. Excellent.
