    Chamomile, green tea, white peach, honeysuckle, orange blossom, and crushed stone are evoked by the scent of the Coche-Dury 2006 Meursault Perrieres. Citrus oils and marzipan, along with a subtle note of caramelization to its abundant pit fruits all testify irresistibly to the ripeness of the vintage, yet without any sense of superficial sweetness or fattiness. With a refined, slippery, silken texture and an airy sense of wafting elegance - yet at the same time suggesting a firm foundation of sheer chalky stone - this magnificent Perrieres stains even as it invigorates the palate.

    Here the nose is much more discreet and restrained with notes of white flower, white peach and pear aromas giving way to classy, detailed and almost aggressively mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that are impressively refined and possess a silky mouth feel on the wonderfully intense and admirably long and energetic finish. A striking effort that should age for years though, as Coche suggests, drink well young.

    Pale color. Reticent but pure aromas of minerals, crushed stone and spices. Extremely backward and hard to taste today, like sucking on a mouthful of rocks. Very minerally calcaire-driven wine with terrific aging potential. But the Genevrieres will give pleasure earlier.

  • 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.
