2005 Bouchard Père et Fils Beaune Grèves 1er Cru "Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus"

SKU #1113652 93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A distinctly more elegant and higher-toned nose introduces rich, full, pliant and refined flavors that possess outstanding depth on the ripe, balanced, pure and sublimely harmonious finish. A terrific Beaune and highly recommended. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding* Inner quote mark (4/2007)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark 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. Drink through 2024. (BS) Inner quote mark (5/2008)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark 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. (ST) Inner quote mark (4/2008)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (DS) Inner quote mark (6/2007)
