discreet though not invisible application of wood sets off highly complex aromas of plum liqueur and a wide range of floral elements that are trimmed in soft spice and earth notes. There is outstanding richness to the full-bodied and concentrated medium-bodied flavors that possess a seductive, even caressing mouth feel before concluding in a decidedly firm, well-balanced and slightly austere finish. This is very clearly built-to-age and should mature slowly over the next 12 to 15 years. Very impressive.
Lush and vibrant, exuding cherry and blueberry flavors, this ripe red is inviting yet deceptive in terms of structure. The tannins are wrapped in flesh and fruit for now, but should provide support over the next 10 to 15 years. (BS)
A 3.9-hectare plot in the center of Beaune-Grèves 1er Cru. A very impressive array of raspberries and red cherries, as well as pastry notes and young leather. Very fresh. The palate has terrific depth and detail, saturated plush fruits. A long red-cherry finish. Drink or hold.
The 2015 Beaune 1er Cru Les Greves Vigne de l'Enfant Jesus comes from sandier soil than elsewhere in Beaune Grèves and therefore tends to be picked earlier. This blend contains around 30% whole cluster fruit. It has a clean and fresh bouquet with red plum, mulberry and cranberry aromas that have more brightness than some of Bouchard Père's other red 2015 barrel samples. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well judged acidity, plenty of red fruit mixed with honey, hints of marmalade, quite exotic for this vineyard, but with everything kept in proportion. This should develop into a fine red Burgundy.(NM)
Bright, dark red. Pure, perfumed aromas of blackberry, menthol, violet and licorice, with a note of blood orange emerging with air. Rich, tactile, seamless and deep; seriously ripe but vibrant wine with strong medicinal reserve to its densely packed flavors of black cherry, dark berries, spices, licorice and minerals. Darker in its flavor profile than the Clos de la Mousse and distinctly firmer and more structured than that wine; no easy sweetness in this zesty Beaune wine. Finishes with a serious dusting of fine-grained tannins that reach the front teeth. Still a bit youthfully withdrawn, this wine will need at least a few years in bottle to expand. But a very strong vintage for this cuvée--and built for a graceful evolution in bottle. (ST)
