Bouchard Pere & Fils Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus Premier cru 2019

The name "Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus" 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 Jésus", predicted the birth of the king of France, Louis XIV, although
her mother, Anne of Austria, was sterile. On the birth of the future "Roi Soleil", this
exceptional vineyard which belonged to the Carmelites, took on the name "Vigne de
l'Enfant Jésus". In 1791, when all national property was sold, Bouchard Père & Fils
put in a bid for the vineyard, situated in the heart of the 32 hectares of the Beaune
Grèves appellation, of which it still has the monopoly today.
