2018 Bouchard Beaune 1er Cru Clos Saint-Landry

91 Points Parker's Wine Advocate
In stock
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.
$110.00 in mixed 6+ or $125.00 per bottle



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, William Kelley

"The 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Clos Saint-Landry Blanc offers up aromas of mirabelle plums, apricot and white flowers, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and textural palate that's ripe and enveloping but which remains nicely defined. Again, this will drink well young. — Bouchard's Frédéric Weber was demonstrably satisfied with his 2018 portfolio, and he has every reason to be. Ripe but controlled, this is a very consistent range of fleshy but structured reds—which readers might think of as a more rounded version of the 2005 vintage—and elegant, fragrant whites."
