The flagship wine of the Domaine Coche-Dury; an ultra-rare icon and an exceptional wine in its power and refinement, as well as in its potential to age. More info
Corton-Charlemagne from Coche-Dury has a rare intensity and generously fruity character. The Domaine's hallmark aromas of walnut and hazelnut are present of course. The texture is rich for the appellation but as this is Corton-Charlemagne, it is more polished than the estate's Meursaults. This wine should be aged for 10-20 years.
Jean-François Coche-Dury is one of the world's leading figures for the vinification of white wines. In 1972 he took over the domain from his father who built it up in the early 1920's. Over the years he acquired new wine parcels. His domain, which today covers just over 10 hectares, counts 8.5 hectares of Chardonnay and Aligoté. He uses a vinification that reinforces the natural expression of the terroir without changing it: gentle pressing, regular stirring of lees in oak barrels, 50% of which are replaced every year. His style is inimitable; he creates pure and elegant wine whose finesse and persistency are quite remarkable. His wines are renowned and sought after by connoisseurs throughout the world. All Chardonnay amateurs must taste these wines.
