Description

It is on the site of this remarkable vineyard that we find the oldest traces of the Chardonnay variety in Beaune. Quite a rarity in this Pinot Noir territory. Before it was given the appellation of Clos Saint-Landry, this vineyard appeared under the name of Tielandry, meaning the estate of a certain Landry. It then became the property of the abbey of Maizieres before the purchase by Antoine Philibert Joseph Bouchard in 1791. Since then Bouchard Pere & Fils has preciously kept the monopoly of this white Premier Cru of 1.98 hectares.

Review

A vaguely exotic nose reflects nose of white peach, apricot, orange peel and a pretty floral hint. The rich and relatively full-bodied flavours are also quite generous while displaying good verve on the youthfully austere and lemony finish. This is racier than it usually is and should repay a few years of keeping yet drink well early on.

Tasting Profile

Palate
Sauve aromatics of fruit and flowers harmoniously blended with just the right touch of oak. This is a rich wine with expressive aromas and extraordinary smoothness. Good ageing potential.
