Tasting Notes

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. Drink 2021-2038.

Score: 91/93 Neal Martin, vinous.com (49), January 2019

The 2017 Beaune 1er Cru Les Grèves Vigne de l'Enfant Jesus exhibits aromas of incense, cassis, blackberry, grilled meat, espresso roast and dark chocolate. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, fleshy and richly structured, with a generous, oak-inflected finish. While this is unlikely to surpass the 2015 and 2016 renditions in ultimate quality, it will offer more immediate gratification.
