Description

Bouchard is one of the major producers in Burgundy with a long history dating back to the late 18th Century. Now owned by the Henriot family, a highly-regarded Champagne producer, Bouchard owns plots in some of the more important vineyards in the region while also functioning as negociants, buying about 2/3rds of their grapes from other reputable growers. The grapes for this bottling were sourced from one of their own vineyards intriguingly named Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus—the vines of the baby Jesus. Legend has it that a Carmelite nun Marguerite du Saint-Sacrement, in communion with God, prophesied the birth of the long anticipated heir to the French throne of Louis XIII. Among the donations received by the Carmelite order as the bearer of this welcome news was this highly regarded vineyard which was then named Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus.

A very pretty nose of cherry, with layers of dried mushrooms and dill, the palate is firm, yet delicate with the silky elegance expected from wines of this region. Well-integrated, fresh, with refined tannins, restrained oak, and pronounced acidity that never turns sour, this wine is all about balance—a graceful, charming representation of Beaune Premier Cru. It was lovely paired with a roast duck with parsnips and mushrooms.
