Bouchard’s Baby Jésus, the flagship from Bouchard Père & Fils, despite being a house that produces Grand Crus from Montrachet, Bonnes Mares, Echézeaux and Clos Vougeot. It’s from a 3.9 hectare parcel of Beaune-Grèves, possibly the greatest Premier Cru in Beaune, that the Bouchard family bought in 1791 after the French Revolution brought the land from the church to the state. Opens with an extraordinary perfume that foreshadows the intensity and focus to follow. A beautiful and striking contrast of black and red fruit purity slides with ease across the smooth stone minerality. Secondary wildflower and black tea are just present enough to allow delicate tertiary notes of coffee, meat, and underbrush to linger around the lengthy finish. Nothing is concentrated or extracted and yet the intensity is hair-raising. Excellent.

'11 is showing much better than the '10 right now. The '10 has the structure and fruit to go for the long haul though. #bouchard #beaune #greves #premiercru #burgundy #ronburgundy #littlebabyjesus #talladeganights #rickybobby #willferrell #pinotnoir #ctbucklinwine

Quite tasty with an odd long finish dominated by cinnamon and stewed cherries.

I prefer to avoid infanticide of under aged Burgundies but this bottle, opened at the amazing young restaurant Elske in Chicago, was outstanding and drinking beautifully. I literally had a mind bending experiencing taking a sip after a bite of the agnolotti with fermented black bean with morels... the perfumey bouquet of the wine striking a lightening in earthy savory umami bomb covered tongue. I feel I understand why addicts crave that high and want to keep repeating - I want more of this grape juice along with Elske agnolotti!
