  • Deep rich scent and taste with complexity that evolves in the glass. A little lighter than expected but overall a fine glass of wine.

  • Good deep colour, glossy rim.
    Rich ripe fruit, dark cherry and plum with hints of blueberry.
    Soft, some flesh but a little on the lean side. Ripe fruits with an earthy edge and some sour cherry zest. Finishes a little tart with some astringency.

  • Big baby jesus! ODB. Love it. Classic undertones of Beaune funk, earth, forest floor and moss. Decanted for 45 minutes and amazingly open and giving. Impressed at readiness here. Acid is awesome and carries through and makes this wine go great with bigger richer food. Rib-eye and acid cut it great. Truly pleasurable and thoughtful wine. Holding off on the rest I have will be tough.

  • lots of.layers of fruit , earth, and spice. Lovely. I'm drinking it on it's own, but this would shine with food. Also as previously noted , it's too young.

  • Les 2008 en Bourgogne ont passé un cap. Ils semblent au nez -souvent- aromatiquement évolués, plus vieux qu'on le penserait. Ce que la bouche dément ensuite.
    Tel est le cas de ce Grèves séduisant aux arômes kirschés, de sous-bois et épicés. Il lui a bien fallu une heure pour s'épanouir, se renforcer, et offrir des notes de cassis confituré, voire de pêche (voire de fleurs), mais c'était deja la fin de la bouteille! Belle texture ample et acidulee, moyennement longue, mais racée.
    Un millesime pas facile qui déçoit souvent lorsque l'acidité prend le dessus. Ce qui n'est pas le cas ici, sur un terroir qui laisse transparaître un bel ensoleillement.

    (Bouchard Père et Fils Beaune 1er Cru Grèves Vigne de L'Enfant Jesus) Medium dark cherry red color; sous bois, green, menthol nose; tight, tart raspberry, sous bois, mineral, tart red fruit palate with sweet tannins; medium-plus finish (not as tasty and well knit as I'm used to with this Bouchard bottling)
