We are excited to secure and offer you today a parcel of the flagship wine from Bouchard Pere & Fils "Grèves - Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus"! The name "Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus" refers to an old story. It is said that Marguerite du Saint Sacrement, the founding carmelite of the "Domestiques de la famille du Saint Enfant Jésus", 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 Soleil", this exceptional vineyard which belonged to the Carmelites, took on the name "Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus". In 1791, when all national property was sold, Bouchard Père & Fils put in a bid for the vineyard, situated in the heart of the 32 hectares of the Beaune Grèves appellation, of which it still has the monopoly to this day.
Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus itself is a 3.92 hectares vineyard situatied in Beaune Les Grèves Premier Cru, this is the best heartland of Beaune where the richest, most structured and longest-lived wines are produced. Although this may take a few years to develop in the bottle, this is a great opportunity to secure few bottles from this parcel at HK$690 per bottle - lowest in the global market# -

92-94pts Allen Meadows “Sweet spot Outstanding”
A discreet though not invisible application of wood sets off highly complex aromas of plum liqueur and a wide range of floral elements that are trimmed in soft spice and earth notes. There is outstanding richness to the full-bodied and concentrated medium-bodied flavors that possess a seductive, even caressing mouth feel before concluding in a decidedly firm, well-balanced and slightly austere finish. This is very clearly built-to-age and should mature slowly over the next 12 to 15 years. Very impressive.
Subject to final confirmation. Available in 2-4 weeks.
Delivery is free-of-charge for orders above HK$3,000; otherwise a standard delivery fee of HK$80 applies.
