About This Wine...
2 bottles of each vintage in a wooden case.
Since its foundations in 1731, Bouchard Père et Fils has put together an exceptional vineyard holding along the Côte d’Or. The fact that the firm owns land in some of the most prestigious of Burgundy’s terroirs, makes its objectives an obligation: constant progress towards perfection. A ‘great wine’ demands time and utmost care at every step in its production. This is why the firm calls upon the most suitable equipment (such as the new winery, inaugurated in 2005) and a team that shares the highest standards in terms of craftsmanship and creativity.
The name “Vigne de l’Enfant Jesus” refers to an old story. It is said that Marguerite du Saint Sacrement, the founding carmelite of the “Domestiques de la famille du Saint Enfant Jesus”, predicted the birth of Louis XIV, although his mother Anne of Austria, was sterile. On the birth of the future “Roi Soleil”, this exceptional vineyard was offered to the Carmelites as an expression of gratitude, and took on the name “Vigne de l’Enfant Jesus”. In 1791, when all of the Church’s property was put up for sale, Bouchard Père & Fils won the bid for this vineyard of 4 hectares, situated in the heart of Beaune Grèves’ appellation, and still holds the exclusivity today.
Garnet colour with brown and purple shades. Deep nose developing flavours of ripe black fruit and spices. Dense and rich mouth, with a structure of racy tannins and lingering velvety finish. A great bottle.
Garnet colour with purple and brown shades. Deep bouquet displaying scents of stewed red fruit married with hints of mocha and liquorice. Ample, round, fleshy to the palate, with present but well-bred tannins. A very classy wine.
Garnet colour with violet shades. The nose is very refined and associates perfumes of small red fruit, mocha, spicy touches and black fruit at the end. Refined, full, fleshy mouth sustained by nice and ripe tannins. A great wine.
