Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Beaune 1er Cru was inaugurated to celebrate the 150th anniversary and it comes from vineyards from various contracted growers, the multifarious vineyards printed on the label. It has only been made in 2009 and 2012 (incidentally, there will be no 2013.) It is mainly produced in magnum and larger formats, although there are a minority of bottles being produced. There will be around 200 barrels in 2012. It has an agreeable, lighter bouquet than I imagined, well-defined with dark berry and plum fruit. The palate is rounded and generous on the entry with bold, quite assertive tannins but plenty of lush red, citrus-tinged fruit to back it up, and a satisfying saline aftertaste. As I mentioned to Frederic Barnier, I enjoyed this wine, but having tasted through the various lieux-dits beforehand, I could not help yearning for that intellectual exercise for discerning a place.
