Beaune 1er Cru “Les Grèves” Reviews

Score: 90 | April 13, 2015 | Burghound

The ripe and brooding nose grudgingly reveals notes of dark cherry, raspberry, violets and plenty of earth character. There is both good volume and solid mid-palate concentration to the rich but detailed medium weight flavors that deliver reasonably good depth and length on the ever-so-slightly austere finish. The dusty mouth feel and moderately firm tannic spine suggests that this will need at least 5 to 7 years of cellar time and 8 to 10 wouldn’t surprise me as this is clearly backward at the moment. I would further note that this is a good deal more concentrated and serious than is typical for the Boisset wines.
