Pale color. Nose dominated by lemon and stony minerality. Dense and sweet but quite austere, with an impression of creamy depth countered by a suggestion of grape skins. Finishes very firm and austere. Raphael Coche noted that this was the estate's hottest sector and lowest yield in 2010, which led to "a lot of concentration of the skins, and a tannic quality like the 2005." Forget about this one for at least seven or eight years.

Sweet mint, flowers, honey and sage are some of the notes that emerge from the 2010 Meursault Caillerets. The wine starts off rather understated, then blossoms on the palate. Layers of pure, crystalline minerality linger on the dazzling finish. This is a fabulous showing.

About This Producer


According to Robert Parker, "Jean-Francois Coche-Dury is one of the greatest winemakers on planet Earth." Parker' impassioned reverence to this estate in the late '80s brought its appeal worldwide, but neither triple digit scores nor critical acclaim need speak for the insanely low yields and meticulous winemaking that give Domaine Coche-Dury its mystique.

Approximately half of the domaine's nine hectares of vineyards are situated around its hometown of Meursault, and although Coche is best known for Chardonnay, the domaine also bottles six exquisite Pinot Noirs. Famous for the extensive oak treatment and a staggering 22 months in barrel, Coche Dury's finest wines, such as Corton Charlemagne and Meursault Perrieres, have power, concentration, purity, and depth balanced by vibrant acidity for extreme longevity.
