Pale lemon-yellow. Nose dominated by crushed rock. Like a liqueur of sappy citrus fruits and minerals in the mouth, with electric energy that's almost painful today. Dense, thick, sweet and fine-grained, with a hint of toast adding another element toward the back. Explosive finishing minerality leaves the palate vibrating on the endless aftertaste. Incredible juice, and likely to be very long-lived.

Coche's 2010 Meursault Perrieres covers every inch of the palate with relentless energy and purity. Today the wine is incredibly shut down, yet there is a tension and pure energy that is simply remarkable. The huge, enveloping finish is incredibly tempting, but the reality is that the Perrieres is going to require several years in bottle, at a minimum, to start drinking well. Readers who are able to find it are in for a real treat. Anticipated maturity: 2020+.

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.
