The name "Vigne de L'Enfant Jesus" refers to an old story. It is said that Marguerite de Saint Sacrement, the founding Carmelite of the "Domestiques de la famille du Saint Enfant Jesus", predicted the birth of the King of France, Louis XIV, although his mother, Anne of Austria, was sterile. On the birth of the future "Roi de Soleil", this exceptional vineyard which belonged to the Carmelites, took on the name "Vigne de L'Enfant Jesus". In 1791, when all national property was sold, Bouchard Pere et Fils put in a bid for the vineyard, situated in the heart of the 32 hectares of the Beaune Greves appellation, of which it still has the monopoly today.


Superb fruit and spice aromas with an oaky note on the nose. Intense, full and yet delicate on the palate, the wine has a charming velvetiness. Very good aging potential.
