  • The wine presents an impressive combination of fruit and spice aromas, complemented by subtle oaky notes that add depth to the bouquet. Upon tasting, it reveals an intense and full-bodied character yet maintains a delicate and velvety texture on the palate. This balance of robustness and finesse makes it a truly remarkable wine. It has been carefully aged 12 to 14 months in French oak barrels, with a significant portion of new oak (40 to 40%) contributing to its rich and complex flavour profile. Furthermore, this wine boasts excellent ageing potential, promising to evolve and develop even more depth and nuance over time.

Intense and tightly wound, this red displays a laser beam of cherry and berry fruit with an underlying mineral element and a steely structure. It's concentrated and long, yet needs time to reveal all its facets. Beaune 1er Cru Les Greves Vigne de l'Enfant Jesus unwinds in the glass with notes of plums, cassis, loamy soil, black truffle, spices, and incense. Medium to full-bodied, velvety, and layered, it's deep and concentrated, with bright acids, ultra-refined tannins, and a long, penetrating finish. This is the latest in a series of superb renditions of this cuvée, and it may be the finest.

The name “Vine of Baby Jesus” refers to an old story. It is said that Marguerite du Saint-Sacrement, Carmelite founder of the “domestiques de la Famille du Saint Enfant Jesus”, predicted the birth of King Louis XIV of France. However, his mother Anne of Austria was barren. Nine months after the prediction, on 5 September 1638, the future Louis XIV was born. The reputation of Marguerite du Saint-Sacrement then spread throughout the land, and donations were poured in. In this atmosphere of fervent giving, the Carmelites received a renowned vineyard and gave it the name of “Vigne de l’Enfant-Jesus” (Vine of Baby Jesus).
