  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    ($61) Medium red. Raspberry, smoke, coffee and earth on the nose. Velvety and sweet, with harmonious acidity giving shape to the wine's flavors. Finishes lush, sweet and long, with a fine dusting of tannins.

    A firm, rustic wine, the 2002 Beaune Greves Vigne de l'Enfant Jesus (domaine) lacks the hedonistic jammy fruit and supple personalities of Bouchard's other 2002 Beaunes. Light to medium-bodied, it displays brambleberries and blackberries in a bright, foursquare character. This wine will need to soften and blossom to ultimately merit a score in the upper eighties.

    Backward. Chewy and rustic, with density and concentration. Cherry, raspberry and spice are the main flavor themes, with sweet fruit carrying through the long finish. 2,300 cases made.

    Cask sample.Scented liqueur of a nose. Very gutsy and concentrated for a Beaune. Fine tannins. Still chewy finish. Slightly dry. Lots of life.

    The recent mise has not troubled this either as the nose is wonderfully expressive, rich and classy, leading to concentrated, dense, pure, textured and beautifully detailed and precise flavors that ooze minerality and sap on the wonderfully long finish. This is very powerful for a Beaune 1er and it will be capable of aging for two decades, perhaps longer.

Eighty-six hectares of grand and premier cru vineyards. One hundred thirty total hectares in the Cote d'Or. Eighty crus produced each vintage. Two hundred seventy-five years of history. Bouchard Père et Fils is truly an institution in Beaune. The Maison was founded by father and son Michel and Joseph Bouchard in 1731, and the family wine merchant business has grown steadily ever since, taking any opportunity to add to its vineyard holdings along the way. Not to be completely overshadowed by its wines, Bouchard conducts business in the very center of Beaune in the old Chateau de Beaune, whose storied past rivals that of the Maison. In 1995, the Champagne family of Joseph Henriot took control of Bouchard, resulting in improvements in quality, not to mention the addition of more top-level vineyard sites. Reds of particular interest include the flagship Beaune Grèves Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus and the Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. As for whites, the Meursault Genevrières, Meursault Perrières, Chevalier-Montrachet and Montrachet are all great interpreters of their particular sites, exhibiting the many nuances of grand and premier cru Chardonnay.
