Unique stuff, the Saint-Landry site is where Burgundy's most ancient traces of Chardonnay are to be found. The Bouchard family purchased it a while back – oh, you know, two hundred plus years ago – and it is now a 'Monopole' (exclusive to them). A classic Beaune and a distinctive white Burgundy from a special terroir, the Clos Saint-Landry is a staff favourite.

Its Origins

Today the Burgundian wine domaine of Bouchard Pere et Fils can trace its origins back to 1731, though it is no longer family owned. In 1995 the Champagne house Joseph Henriot acquired the company and quality has risen as a consequence. Bouchard is led by Stéphane Follin Arbelet, while the wines are made by Philippe Prost - who has been with the company since 1978. An impressive gravity-flow winery on the Route de Savigny, the Cuvérie St Vincent, was completed in 2005 and enables them to process all their wines with optimum efficiency. Bouchard’s total holdings comprise 130 hectares, including 12ha of grand crus and 74ha of premier crus, which makes them the largest vineyard owners in the Côte d’Or.

What The Critics Say

89-91/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Neal Martin

"The 2015 Beaune 1er Cru Clos Saint-Landry Blanc, another monopole of Bouchard Père, comes from vines on white marl soil. It has been planted with white vines since the 13th century and you can understand why because the aromatics here are crisp and mineral-driven, hints of freshly sliced pear and melon emerging with time. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry, well balanced with subtle exotic fruit (guava and pineapple), yet the terroir is clearly articulated on the finish. This comes recommended: one of Bouchard Père's successes in 2015." Drink 2017 - 2025

Galloni's Vinous, Stephen Tanzer

"Good pale, bright yellow. Sexy clove note to the ripe stone fruit and floral aromas. Hints at banana in the mouth, but this smooth wine seems a bit less sweet and higher in acidity than the Blanc du Château. Also shows more clarity of flavor and inner-mouth lift."
