Winemaker’s Notes

The wines shows superb fruit and spice aromas with an oaky note. Intense, full and yet delicate on the palate, the wine has a charming velvetiness. Very good ageing potential.

“The name “Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus” refers to an old story. It is said that Marguerite du Saint Sacrement, the founding carmelite of the “Domestiques de la famille du Saint Enfant Jésus”, predicted the birth of the king of France, Louis XIV, although her mother, Anne of Austria, was sterile. On the birth of the future “Roi Soleil”, this exceptional vineyard which belonged to the Carmelites, took on the name “Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus”. In 1791, when all national property was sold, Bouchard Père & Fils put in a bid for the vineyard, situated in the heart of the 32 hectares of the Beaune Grèves appellation, of which it still has the monopoly today.”

Reviews

Delicate, smoky red-fruits nose; lifted and elegant. Rich and suave on the palate though concentrated, with firm underlying tannins. This has structure, depth and unusual power for Beaune, probably the result of low yields. Has grip and persistence, with a long, punchy finish. Drink 2018-2030.

This monopole vineyard came into the Bouchard family in 1791, 60 years after the maison was founded. This wine is smoky and full of fruit and sweet tannins. With its balanced tannins and rich fruits, it is developing well. The dense structure behind the fruit promises good aging. Drink from 2020.
