An expressive and ripe single vineyard Pinot Noir from Burgundy. Clos Les Champs Fulliot offers limestone rich soils with minerality and nice drainage, along with a southeasterly aspect capturing the longest exposure to the morning sun. This terroir is effectively an extension of the vineyard's famous and more expensive neighbour, Volnay Clos des Chenes. From this stellar vintage the aromatics are bright and ripe-fruited, with tannins for proper aging. This vineyard has exceptional qualities, but its name association with the humble sites in Monthelie mean it can't command the price of its Volnay neighbours...sweet spot alert!

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 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer

"(these east-facing vines are planted on a meter of clay over chalky limestone, a situation Weber describes as "like Volnay Clos des Chênes and Caillerets but a bit higher"): Healthy dark red. Pungent aromas of crushed rock, spicy oak (30% new) and coffee torrefaction. Richer than the Duresses, showing good sweetness to its creamy black fruit flavors leavened by an element of medicinal reserve and piquant minerality. An impressive, tactile Monthélie, finishing pure and persistent."
