Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils 2017 'Vigne de L'Enfant Jésus', Beaune-Grèves 1er Cru, Burgundy, France

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 del'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

Winemaker | Frédéric Weber
Farming | Sustainable with Organic Practices
Variety | Pinot Noir
Terroir | East-Southeast exposure on Limestone and clay, sandy and gravelly soils.
Vinification | Hand harvested, hand-sorted. Following total or partial destemming on the vintage, fermentation in small containers, gentle pressing ensure optimal vinification. Depending on the profile of the vintage, vatting lasts 15 to 20 days.
Aging | 12 to 14 months in French oak, with 30 to 50% new oak. The cellars of the Bastions of the ancient Château de Beaune offer natural ambient conditions that are perfectly adapted to ageing the Premiers Crus.
Tasting Note | Superb fruit and spice aromas with an oaky note on the nose. Intense, full andyet delicate on the palate, the wine has a charming velvetiness. Very good ageing potential.
Scores | 92 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 92 Points Burghound
