Reviews 93 points Wine Advocate "The 2006 Meursault Genevrieres has a reticent bouquet at first, unfolding gradually in the glass to reveal hints of citrus peel, smoke and even a hints of chestnut. It seems to have more delineation that other 2006s that I have tasted from the domaine. The palate is Meursault through and through with walnut and hazelnut notes, very well judged acidity and a captivating poise on the finish. There are hints of spice and praline lingering on the aftertaste. This is certainly the Coche Dury that I would pick from this vintage. (NM)" 95 points Vinous "Knockout nose combines soft citrus fruits, lemon peel and stone. Wonderfully tactile and vibrant in the mouth, with an uncanny fine-grained, silky texture and explosive perfume to its soft citrus and stone flavors. Offers a rare combination of finesse and richness and conveys a light touch for the year. Beautifully balanced and complete Meursault. (ST)"

The viticulture and vinification practices at Domaine Coche-Dury involve meticulous attention to detail. The vineyards are now entirely plowed, and a pneumatic press works alongside the traditional mechanical Vaslin. Grapes are firmly crushed before pressing, which contributes to the Coche-Dury style, and then fermented and matured in barrels with no more than 25% new wood, except for top wines. The whites are racked in July, when barrels of a given cuvée are blended and returned to cask for a second winter before being bottled cask by cask in April of their second year.
Jean-François' son, Raphaël, has continued the family's tradition of excellence since his father's retirement in 2010. No clones are planted in their vineyards, a rarity in Burgundy. Once in the cellar, vinifications are long and traditional, with extended lees contact to prevent oxidation and support the wines' freshness. New wood is used to extend cellar-aging potential and provide a clean slate for perfect fruit expression. Coche-Dury's wines are characterized by their signature reductive style and lean, racy acidity. This no doubt contributes to their long length on the palate and predictably consistent ageability.
The domaine's Chardonnay and Pinot Noir offerings come from small parcels spread over six communes: Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Auxey-Duresses, Monthelie, and Volnay. The combination of Raphaël's expertise and the outstanding vineyards has resulted in legendary wines that showcase precision, concentration, and the classic mineral qualities of their respective terroirs.
