Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin (2008 vintage):

"A great wine, one of the most representative of Beaune, the capital of Burgundy. Intense and bright red colour. The nose displays aromas of red currant with some spicy notes. With age and in some vintages, the aromas become even more marked by spicy and smoky touches, such as tobacco. On the palate, the tannins are refined and create a seductive harmony. In the aftertaste there is a marked flavour of "crème de cassis" (cream of black currant) and delicate touches of wood".


Ratings & Reviews


94 Points - James Sucking:
"The aromas are pure and fruity with strawberries. Quite earthy and spicy. Some pepper. Full-bodied, round and juicy. Lots of intense fruit and richness. Long and flavorful. Excellent. Drink in a couple of years." - (Feb 2018)

92 Points - Allen Meadows Burghound

89-91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Les Grèves comes from vines located just 50 meters from Les Cras and includes around 25% whole bunch fruit. The nose was showing just a touch of reduction, but underneath lies attractive, quite punchy cranberry and cassis fruit. The palate is well balanced with earthy, red berry fruit and is lent a little rusticity by the whole bunch addition but still balanced with a pleasant bitter cherry finish. This is a fine Beaune Grèves that should end up at the top end of my banded score." - Neal Martin Dec 2017)
