91-94 points


Renowned and respected as one of the finest producers in Burgundy, Bouchard Père et Fils has truly become an institution, known for the exceptional quality of its wines and the diversity of its many vineyards.

Founded in 1731, Bouchard Père et Fils has built up an estate of 130ha and, collectively, is the largest owner of Grand Crus (12ha) and Premier Crus (74ha) across the Côte d’Or. Bouchard Père et Fils represents almost one hundred climates or uniquely diverse vineyards, including prestigious monopoles such as ‘Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus’ and ‘Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte’.

Clos des Chenes is one of Volnay's most notable premier cru vineyards, located on the midslope of the Côte d'Or escarpment. The terroir here is perfectly suited to the production of Pinot Noir, to which it is exclusively planted. Clos des Chenes Premier Cru wines are some of Volnay's best, exhibiting bright fruit characters along with fine tannins, good acidity, and plenty of elegance.

Allen Meadows

Soft but not imperceptible wood frames the aromas of baked plum and abundant wisps of both spice and floral nuances. The suave, round, and enveloping middle weight plus flavours possess plenty of minerality and overt power and muscle that really comes up on the sappy and palate coating finale where the only nit is a hint of warmth. As is typically the case with Clos des Chênes, this is very compact at present and is going to need 12+ years to arrive at its peak, perhaps even a few years longer.

Pinot Noir pairs well with a range of dishes, including roasted poultry, grilled salmon, and mushroom-based recipes, thanks to its versatile and medium-bodied characteristics.
