Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 91-93 points

The 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Les Grèves comes from the oldest vines at the domaine, now some 95 years old. The fruit profile on the nose is a little darker than the Beaune Aigrots but just as well defined. Perhaps they are more tightly knit at the moment? The palate is very well balanced and the tannin less chalky than the Aigrots, but it compensates with more density and substance. It has a lovely dark berry and bay leaf finish. Give this 3 or 4 years in bottle and you will have a very delicious Les Grèves on your hands.
