    Caramel-coated apples, melons, and white flowers are exhibited in the nose of the intense 2002 Corton-Charlemagne. Medium-bodied, plush, and pure, its flavor profile is reminiscent of golden raisins, quartz, minerals and spices. This is a complex, exceptionally ripe wine with superb balance, depth, and length.

    Ideal conditions for the vine. Great balance in the vines. The north wind kept the vines healthy. Very classic season and wine. Very good balance in the grapes as well as the vines. Ideal. For Raphael, 2002 was better balanced than the 2005, even though everyone talks about 2005s being a great year. Lovely minerality and struck match quality on the nose. The Coches have hardly tasted it because they are so sure of it and they just have it stashed away in the cellar. Liquorice and refinement but then great depth and weight follows it up. Great length. Dry finish but with great depth and richness beforehand. Wonderful aftertaste and persistence. Real life and elegance. Lovely texture plus depth - a great combination.

    Steely, penetrating aromas of pineapple, apple and minerals; almost medicinal in its austerity. Then dense, fat and ripe but at the same time powerful, steely and backward. Conveys a drier impression today than the Meursault Perrieres. Not yet particularly complex, but this strongly minerally, layered wine offers great grip and aging potential. Coche noted that there were more rain showers around the village of Aloxe-Corton in '02 than in Meursault, which is one reason he prefers the Meursault Perrieres in this vintage. The same weather pattern occurred in vintage 2003, but in '03 the extra precipitation was a boon for his Corton-Charlemagne vines.

  • 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.
