    From The Purple Notebook - Bill Baker's Dinner at the Blueprint Cafe.Very full and floral. Slightly low acid. Much less reductive than usual. Great wine. (The Corton-Charlemagne 1997 at Bill's memorial dinner was even more concentrated - this was clearly a very successful vintage for Coche-Dury.)

    Smoked meat, spice and quince on the nose. Fat, sweet and very rich, yet manages to retain good freshness. Very long, strong finish coats the palate with ripe fruit and mineral flavors.

    The Meursault Perrieres displays lovely aromas of candied limes, lemons, minerals, rocks, and smoke. This is a hugely rich, medium-to-full-bodied, viscously-textured wine. It has great class and enormous elegance to its peach, stone, earth, clay, and red berry-filled flavor profile. Were it not for an austere and lightly dusty finish I would have been even more enamored by this offering's rich panoply of flavors and exquisite texture.

    This particular bottle displayed clear signs of premature oxidation though the flavors were still delicious. A more representative note is: The nose is exceptionally ripe though not surmature with obvious notes of honey, peach and apricot though no exotic fruit aromas. The very rich and full-bodied flavors have arrived at full maturity with a lovely mouth coating sappy quality to the moderately powerful and persistent finish. This is not nearly as elegant as is typical for this normally superb wine but it's nonetheless satisfying in its fashion. Consistent notes.

  • 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.
