Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 94
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.

BH 93
Burghound.com
Strong wood and menthol elements all but dominate the earthy and spicy red dark pinot fruit scents. 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.
Barrel Sample: 90-93
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

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. Drink on release or hold.

Wine & Spirits

This 9.7-acre monopole at the center of the Grèves premier cru was the property of the Carmelite order until church properties were sold off after the French Revolution. The Bouchard family purchased the vineyard in 1791 and its wine remains one of the signatures of the domaine. It’s treated like a grand cru, with 50 percent new oak in top vintages, and in 2017 the oak and fruit are finely married, destined to evolve together for years in bottle. The dark cherry fruit is intensely floral, girded by gingery spice in the tannins, tight, juicy and cool.

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Lush and juicy, this red delivers plum, black cherry, sweet spice and toasty oak flavors on a soft frame. Dense, showing fine balance and length. Drink now through 2030.

COMMENTARY: One of the best parcels in Beaune Grèves, the Vigne de L'Enfant Jésus Beaune-Grèves has consistently produced one of Beaune's top wines. The 2017 vintage is picture-perfect. TASTING NOTES: This wine delivers persistent red fruit aromas and flavors that is alluring as it captures the palate with the essence of Burgundy. Its aromas and flavors are open knit and offer plenty of ripe fruit that would pair well with nicely with a mildly-seasoned veal roast. (Tasted: March 14, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Beaune Wine

Burgundy, France

View all products

While the city represents the epicenter of wine production in Burgundy, the term, “Beaune” also refers to the specific sub-appellation of the greater Côte de Beaune, whose vineyards climb up the pastoral slopes that border the city to its west. Originally founded as a Roman camp by Julius Caesar, the city of Beaune eventually became the seat of the dukes of Burgundy until the 13th century. Today it is home to top négociants such as Louis Jadot, Joseph Drouhin, Louis Latour, and Bouchard Père et Fils.

The appellation, dominated by Pinot Noir plantings, represents a lovely and charming place to begin to understand red Burgundy. Its sandy soils create light and supple, floral driven Pinot Noir. These wines are designed to be enjoyed within five to 10 years. The vineyards of Beaune span a broad swath of Premier Crus from Savigny-lès-Beaune to its border with Pommard.

Chardonnay acreage here has been increasing here in the more recent years.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
