94 Points Decanter:
Showing pronounced cassis and plum fruit, with a floral edge and a hint of pepper. The full body and supple tannins are enlivened by a bright acidity to produce a very energetic impression on the palate. Good extract and length. The 1.26ha de Montille parcel of Beaune Grèves is just south of Bouchard's Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus. The vines here are almost 50 years old. The fruit ripened extremely well in 2020 and the grapes were fermented with nearly 50% whole-cluster before ageing in 25% new casks. Drinking Window: 2025-2050


Burghound 91 points (from a 1.26 ha holding; 33% whole clusters). Moderate reduction blocks an evaluation of the fruit though the whole cluster influence is perceptible. More interesting are the impressively intense flavors that possess both good minerality and cut on the lengthy and balanced finale that displays focused power. Excellent. Drink: 2032+. (Jun 2022)Tim Atkin 94 points This is a lively Les Grèves, which can be firm and compact in its youth. Tangy cranberries and red currents mesh with strawberries and red plums before a kick of minerality takes the wine into a solid finish. The nicely judged, one-third whole bunch lifts the bouquet without adding any sticky tannic edge. These vines are in the heart of Grèves, just south of Bouchard's Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus. 2022-35.Vinous 91 points The 2020 Beaune Grèves 1er Cru is also one-third whole-cluster (based on fitting it on the cuve so it was more than intended). Dark berry fruit, a touch of black olive and hints of presses iris petal unfold on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, granular in texture with a fresh, slightly chalky finish. Very fine. Closure: Diam. Drink: 2023-2040. (Dec 2021)
