    (43% new oak here): Very tight nose hints at lemon, crushed stone and a discreet leesy quality. Then surprisingly more open-knit on the palate than the Perrieres but still penetrating, powerful and brisk. Finishes with an almost tannic quality and a lingering hint of mirabelle . Coche actually feels that all of his 2011s combine power with a relatively pliant texture and believes that even this wine will be drinking very well in five years' time. But he also prefers the Perrieres 2011 to the young 2012 version. (At the end of my tasting, Coche showed me his 2011 Volnay, a remarkably primary wine with terrific intensity and sappiness to its juicy cherry flavor and a finish featuring silky tannins and noteworthy finesse.)

    The 2011 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has an exquisite bouquet that truly deserves the phrase 'liquid mineral.ƒ?_ Imagine a limestone quarry being melted down and then distilled multiple times until there is just enough to fill your wine glass. The palate has perfect acidity and subtle spicy notes on the entry: hints of lime flower, citrus lemon and a subtle note of mandarin coming through with aeration. Is exhibits balletic poise on the finish ' a sensational Corton-Charlemagne that just may turn out to be just as good as the 2010.

  • 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.
