Description

By Allen Meadows of Burghound  in 2018 (AM94)

Here too the wood treatment is anything but subtle though it stops just short of completely overshadowing the exuberantly spicy plum liqueur and earth-scented nose. There is good drive and even better detail if not the impressive concentration to the medium weight flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the ever-so-slightly warm and very firm finish. Again, my predicted range assumes that the wood treatment will be successfully absorbed over time and note as well that plenty of patience will be necessary.

By James Suckling in 2018 (JS94)

Dark fruits in 2016. The DNA of long, silky tannins is alive and well here. A suave and polished style with an attractive core of flavorsome, elegant mid-palate fruits. Really impressive. Try from 2022

By Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate in 2017 (RP93)

There must have been some divine intervention on the 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Les Grèves Vignes de l’Enfant Jesus because it was less affected by frost than surrounding vineyards. It has a really quite beautiful, very pure bouquet with abundant blackberry, raspberry and crushed strawberry scents laced with crushed violets and rose petals. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannin, still a little oak to be subsumed but there is superb substance on the sumptuous finish. I bet this is one of the best quality-to-price ratio wines in 2016. Bouchard Père & Fils is a Burgundy stalwart that has been part of the furniture since 1731. It is easy to presume that such merchants as Jadot, Bouchard and the like have been overtaken by new producers not hidebound by history. On the contrary, these historical merchants have really upped the quality of their wine in recent years. They had to, in order to survive.
