2013 Domaine J.F Coche-Dury Meursault


Robert Parker describes Jean-François Coche-Dury as “one of the greatest winemakers on planet earth”, and few would beg to differ. Painfully small yields and meticulously precise winemaking are what give the wines their character and intensity. His top wines spend an astonishing 22 months in barriques and are lightly fined but never filtered prior to bottling.

What is it that makes a domaine a cult? This is arguably the most sought after internationally of all white Burgundy domaines. You might expect to be able to put a finger on why the wines are so good. Are the yields low? Not exceptionally. Is there some wizardry during the vinification or élévage? Sometimes I think it is just that Jean François Coche-Dury has green fingers! His reds are beautiful, perfumed wines as well, though mostly from lesser appellations. They are destalked and only lightly extracted during a relatively short vinification.

typical Meursault nose features notes of hazelnut, citrus, pear and a hint of acacia blossom that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is good richness and volume to the relatively full-bodied flavors that thanks to the nicely prominent acid spine retain a fine sense of cut and delineation on the markedly linear and lingering finish that is on the leaner side at present. I should note that with air the flavors filled out somewhat but even so it would be fair to observe that this is still very young and will need another 5 to 7 to arrive at its full maturity.
