Wine Enthusiast

This tight wine is firm with tannins and still very young. With a backdrop of dense black fruits and acidity, its potential is considerable. With this promise and richness, the wine needs aging. Drink from 2024. Maisons and Domaines Henriot. Cellar Selection.

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.

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.

Wine Advocate

"The 2019 Beaune 1er Cru Les Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus unwinds in the glass with notes of plums, cassis, loamy soil, black truffle, spices and incense. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered, it's deep and concentrated, with bright acids, ultra-refined tannins and a long, penetrating finish. This is the latest in a series of superb renditions of this cuvée, and it may be the finest of them all." - William Kelley

The 2017 Beaune 1er Cru Les Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jesus is showing well, wafting from the glass with aromas of smoky cherry and blackberry fruit that mingle with nuances of incense, spices and baking chocolate. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, velvety and supple, with a nicely concentrated core of sapid fruit, succulent acids and quite a long, harmonious finish. This has come together very nicely since I tasted it from barrel in early December.

Vinous

The 2017 Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus 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.

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.

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.

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.
