    Although Coche admits to harvesting too late in 1991, his wines are excellent, with several exceptions. The 1991 Meursault- Rougeot is deep and rich, with a sweet, creamy mid-palate, and long, lusty, low acid, thick, unctuous flavors. It is fragile and thus should be consumed over the next 2-3 years. While Coche may lament the fact that these wines do not possess structure and acidity for longevity, they are decadent, rich, lusty white burgundies.

    Muscular Meursault, with exotic ripe fruit character and hints of vanilla; just beginning to show what it has.

  • 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.
