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.
About the cuvée
Domaine Coche-Dury's Meursaults have intense honey and lime flower aromas with a rounded and silky palate and a very long and lingering flavour of plum and hazelnut in particular. This toasted fragrance is Coche-Dury's olfactory hallmark. It is obtained through a gentle, controlled oxidation process.
