Shy nose of dark cherry with a hint of mint and minerals, fullish body with layers of fruit which was still primary, drying finish with some heat, though not intrusive. Will benefit from further cellaring.
Decanted. Dark ruby in the glass. Nose of spiced red cherries and some floral perfume. On the palate, red fruits mixed with spicy cola and sarsaparilla, along with some earth. Nicely balanced with good structure. Hard to stop drinking this one.

(Bouchard Père et Fils Beaune 1er Cru Grèves Vigne de L'Enfant Jesus) Light medium cherry red color with pale meniscus; floral, roses, sous bois nose; silky textured, roses, sous bois, tart red fruit, mineral palate; medium-plus finish 92+ points
(Bouchard Père et Fils Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus) A softer and redder nose. A narrow entry but it bursts across the palate with accessible ripe fruit - structure and complexity follow in the next wave. I think it follows the Bèze much more successfully in 2006 than it did in 2005. Super.
