Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

Aromatic, with spicy oak marking the flavors. Underneath lies cherry, currant and raspberry notes, with a nod to mineral. Taut and lean, with a slightly chewy texture. Fine length.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

($115) Good deep red. Captivating aromas of raspberry, mocha, spices and minerals complemented by sexy oak tones. At once suave and serious, with a lush, seamless texture and excellent lift and tang to its red fruit, mineral and spice flavors. Lovely tangy, complex Beaune wine with a weightless quality and a subtle emerging note of leather. The wine's firm, perfectly integrated tannins should ensure an extended life in bottle.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

Such is Bouchard's pride in their 2005 Beaune Greves Vigne de L'Enfant Jesus and the monopole in which it grew, that they presented this wine at the end of my tasting, following even the very tough (or rather, class) act of a Clos de Beze. Raspberry and strawberry preserves, wood smoke, and roasted meats dominate the nose and palate. There is no lack of stuffing, but also a silky texture and impressive refinement, leading to a satisfying finish that slights neither animal, mineral, nor fruit.

Oh Jesus! Chunky Cherries. Lovely long finish. Needs another 3-5 years to peak.

About This Producer


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 Pere 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 Greve Vigne de l'Enfant Jesus and the Chambertin-Clos de Beze. As for whites, the Meursault Genevrieres, Meursault Perrieres, Chevalier-Montrachet and Montrachet are all great interpreters of their particular sites, exhibiting the many nuances of grand and premier cru Chardonnay.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
