Based on 8 reviews on Cellartracker.com
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)"

Also From Coche-Dury
Domaine Coche-Dury is unequivocally one of the finest estates in Meursault, and one of the most celebrated names in Burgundy. Known for their world-class and age-worthy whites, as well as their highly underrated and infinitely surprising reds, the Domaine is synonymous with outstanding quality. While the Coche family has been making wine in and around Meursault since the 1920s, Jean-François may be the family’s most celebrated member, gracing the label with his wife’s last name, Dury, and raising the Domaine to cult status.
Since 2010, Raphaël Coche and his wife, Charline, have been at the helm of the estate. Following in the family tradition, they farm sustainably, with many of their nine hectares from non-clonal old-vine vineyards throughout Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Auxey-Duresses, Monthélie and Volnay. In the cellar, Raphaël and Charline embrace Coche-Dury’s signature reductive style - where long, traditional vinifications, extended lees contact, and new-oak aging produce vibrant, sumptuous wines.
With only about 4,000 cases produced every year, these are some of the most rare and highly sought after wines in the world.
