    Loads of spices, hazelnuts, and almonds burst from the glass of the 2003 Meursault Perrieres (white). Light to medium-bodied and oily-textured, it exhibits pears, apples, and anise flavors in its expressive character. Its finish, which starts out wonderfully, is tightened by a lemony acidity that Coche will most certainly attend to during elevage.

    Reticent nose hints at soft citrus fruits, honey and licorice; less aromatic than the Genevrieres and more burned by the sun. In a distinctly penetrating, dry style, and not showing the generosity of the vintage's best examples. This was also austere a year ago, but today I don't find enough supporting minerality to be optimistic about the wine's future development in bottle.

    In contrast to the GenevriŠres, there is so much weight and density that this does come across as almost heavy and lacking in grace. Given the track record of consistent excellence, I'm inclined to give it the benefit of the doubt but it would be fair to say that this did not show any where near the quality that it usually does. To revisit.

  • 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.
