Winemaker Notes

Suave aromas harmoniously blended with just the right touch of oak. This is a rich wine with expressive aromas and extraordinary smoothness.

Pairs well with fish and poultry with fairly spicy sauces

Wine Spectator
Bouchard Pere & Fils 2015 Clos Saint- Landry, Beaune, Cote d'Or is where the oldest traces of the Chardonnay variety are found—rare for a predominantly Pinot Noir region. This is a Premier Cru wine on a monopole of just under five acres, with a nose reminiscent of vanilla and lime pudding. The acidity is precise and the palate rich with barrel spices and nuanced with white pepper and crisp pears. A surprise New World tropical note of papaya surges on the smooth finish.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

Founded in 1731, Bouchard Père & Fils is one of Burgundy’s oldest wine merchants and one of the largest landowners in the Côte d’Or. Over the centuries, the House has been devoted to attaining highly renowned parcels to produce exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. With uncompromising quality standards, long term grower partnerships and ageing in a state-of-the-art winery results in wines of outstanding consistency and the truest and finest expression of each terroir.

Bouchard Père & Fils joined the Henriot family portfolio in 1995.

“Year after year, we are committed to achieving the truest and finest expression of each terroir, with respect to traditions, and the specificities of each vintage. I work with the same team and use the same equipment at the winery, whether crafting a Rully, Côte de Beaune-Villages or a Clos Vougeot or Montrachet.” - Frédéric Weber, Bouchard Père & Fils Cellar Master

While the city represents the epicenter of wine production in Burgundy, the term, “Beaune” also refers to the specific sub-appellation of the greater Côte de Beaune, whose vineyards climb up the pastoral slopes that border the city to its west. Originally founded as a Roman camp by Julius Caesar, the city of Beaune eventually became the seat of the dukes of Burgundy until the 13th century. Today it is home to top négociants such as Louis Jadot, Joseph Drouhin, Louis Latour, and Bouchard Père et Fils.

The appellation, dominated by Pinot noir plantings, represents a lovely and charming place to begin to understand red Burgundy. Its sandy soils create light and supple, floral driven Pinot noir. These wines are designed to be enjoyed within five to 10 years. The vineyards of Beaune span a broad swath of Premier Crus from Savigny-lès-Beaune to its border with Pommard.

Chardonnay acreage here has been increasing here in the more recent years.

Chardonnay

View all wine

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While practically every country in the wine producing world grows it, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. As far as cellar potential, white Burgundy rivals the world’s other age-worthy whites like Riesling or botrytized Semillon. California is Chardonnay’s second most important home, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia and South America are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

In the Glass

When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay flavors tend towards grapefruit, lemon zest, green apple, celery leaf and wet flint, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of melon, peach and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut and spice, while malolactic fermentation imparts a soft and creamy texture.

Perfect Pairings

Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with flaky white fish with herbs, scallops, turkey breast and soft cheeses. Richer Chardonnays marry well with lobster, crab, salmon, roasted chicken and creamy sauces.

Sommelier Secret

Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. In Burgundy, the subregion of Chablis, while typically employing the use of older oak barrels, produces a similar bright and acid-driven style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy its lighter style.
