TASTING NOTES

"The 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Les Grèves Vigne de l'Enfant Jesus offers up pretty aromas of cherries, cassis, sweet loamy soil, truffles and grilled game bird. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and supple, with a succulent core of fleshy fruit and a rich and textural profile. It's a giving, generous wine that should offer a broad drinking window, but don't let its early approachability deceive, as it should be long-lived too." William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2016 Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jesus 1er Cru has a generous, fruit-packed bouquet with raspberry and wild strawberry scents, a hint of sous-bois in the background. Fine definition. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannins, quite sharp and citric for a Beaune in this vintage with a bright, slightly angular finish. It just pulls up a little short. It needs another 12 to 18 months to really coalesce. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting in Burgundy." Neal Martin, Vinous.com
