Professional Reviews For This Wine

(from 28 rows of vines in Aloxe-Corton) This too is a massive wine though there is better supporting acidity and much better overall balance. Rich, intense and mineral-laden with very ripe green apple aromas and flavors and a highly complex, very long finish. This will be an early maturing vintage for what is normally one of the longest-lived whites in Burgundy.

Knockout nose combines lime, pineapple, apple and wet stone; much more perfumed than the Perrieres. Then plush and very ripe but not at all roasted, with strong stony character and harmonious acidity giving verve to the wine's expressive fruit flavors. I would not be surprised to see this wine close down in the bottle. Finishes broad and tactile, with terrific persistence. A star of the vintage.

Picked 23 Aug and all was picked by 31 Aug. It had to be Raphael's friends who picked because the regular pickers were still on holiday. Heat spikes rather than drought made this wine. Both leaves and grapes were burnt. The sun was just too strong. Still picked in holiday time. Very small crop. Very low acid so worrying. The juice was the colour of orange juice when pressed. So Jean-François is surprised that the colour of the finished wine is so normal: fairly pale straw. It lacks the ethereal nose of some of the other vintages. Tastes sweet, and rather chestnutty. Flattering but without great structure. Just a little flabby. No residual sugar apparently but it does taste rich - and without great length. Pretty soft - the sweetest of the lot. Definite puppy fat, and 1998 resembles it a bit.

The 2003 Corton-Charlemagne (white) boasts a nose of creamed nuts and spices. This light to medium-bodied offering is rich, satin-textured, and fresh. Cookie dough, buttered toast, anise, nutmeg, assorted spices, minerals, and traces of candied limes can be discerned in its complex character. A lemony note, providing freshness and lift, makes an appearance in its long, suave finish.

About This Producer

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.
