Bouchard Beaune Greves Vigne de l'Enfant Jesus 1er Cru 2011
Renowned and respected as one of the finest producers in Burgundy, Bouchard Père et Fils has truly become an institution, known for the exceptional quality of their wines and the diversity of its many vineyards. Founded in 1731, Bouchard Père et Fils has built up an estate of 130ha and, collectively, is the largest owner of Grand Crus (12ha) and Premier Crus (74ha) across the Côte d’Or Bouchard Père et Fils represents almost one hundred ‘climats’ or uniquely diverse vineyards, including prestigious monopoles such as ‘Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus’ and ‘Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte’.
There is a touch of green tea to the gamey and overtly sauvage aromas of dark berry fruit, plum and floral hints. Like the Teurons there is a really lovely mouth feel to the intense, detailed and refined medium-bodied flavors that possess good if not exceptional volume by the standards of this wine. There is impressive depth and sneaky length to the finish as it almost dies out only to recommence. Good stuff but note that patience will be required. Score: 92 Points; Tasted: April 2013; Drink: 2021+; Issue: 50; Sweet Spot Outstanding; Allen Meadows - Burghound
