The 2021 Beaune Les Greves Vigne de L’Enfant Jesus 1er Cru is on sandier soil than the rest of Les Greves. This is more complex on the nose by comparison, a touch more tension, and with greater sapidity. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip, quite firm tannins, good backbone. A solid Beaune Greves with a welcome dash of black pepper on the finish. There’s a tangible difference in quality between this an the regular Greves bottling this year.
Anticipated maturity: 2024-2040
