Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2007 Beaune Clos St.-Landry - from a Bouchard monopole (and planted in Chardonnay at least) since 1791, with a track record for age-ability - shares with its "little" white Beaune sibling a creamy texture, and luscious, soothing abundance of ripe fruit (here, melon and peach). At the same time there is a sweeter vanilla and Jordan almond side to this, high-toned herbal inflections, and an even stonier mineral dimension. This finishes with lift and layered complexity, if not yet quite that of its 2006 counterpart. I would feel confident in following it for 8-10 years, although Prost and Bouchard commercial director Stephane Follin-Arbelet insist longer.
