Winemaker Notes

The 2011 Jean-Claude Boisset Beaune 1er Cru Les Greves opens up with garnet reflections. A discreet woodiness accompanies blackberry aromas. A silky, tannic quality forms a fairly powerful structure.

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Always a popular vineyard, Beaune Greves produces a full, ripe, intense wine. It shows some signs of wood aging as well as rich strawberry and red plum. It’s delicious already, but this full and complex wine deserves aging.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
This has the earthen cool of a cave, its bright red cherry flavors shaded toward dark rose and smoky tannins. Quiet rather than flashy, this has enough flavor concentration and spicy tannins to develop over the next several years.

Jean-Claude Boisset, France
Jean-Claude Boisset Winery Video

Since 2002, Jean-Claude Boisset has been transformed by Mr. Boisset's son, Jean-Charles, from a traditional négociant into a viniculturaliste, a cross between a viticulturalist and a vinifier. The result is the Jean-Claude Boisset Collection of Wines - Burgundy through and through.

From one of the best young winemakers emerging in France, Grégory Patriat, each of the appellations is the result of rigorous selection and has been produced in limited quantities. This is the way of things in Burgundy... handcrafted in meticulous detail, according to a philosophy of "letting the vine do the work". A taste reveals our aim of striving for authentic wines in which human intervention has been kept to a bare, discreet minimum; the wines are concentrated, well-rounded, and–-of course--expressive of their terroirs.

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.
