Reviews 93 points Wine Advocate "The 2009 Meursault Genevrieres is well-defined on the nose and seems quite rich vis-a-vis other vintages. But that does not obstruct the minerality and detail, which hints of brioche and popcorn that enhance its extravagance. The palate is well-balanced with very good weight: candied orange peel, citrus lemon, touches of hazelnut with a dense, almost introspective finish that will surely come out from under its shell with time. (NM)" 96 points Vinous "The 2009 Meursault Genevrieres is similar in style to the Rougeots, which is to say quite big and rich, but here I find endless layers of minerality that frame the huge, building finish. The purity of the fruit is truly dazzling. (AG)" 93 points Burghound "A strikingly broad and well-layered nose features the classic subtle exoticism of a fine Genevrieres together with ripe orchard fruit, lemon, spice and discreet wet stone hints. There is excellent density and a controlled power to the mouth coating and mineral-inflected flavors that are borderline painfully intense while terminating in a driving, focused and beguiling finish that delivers simply superb length. A stunning effort. (AM)"
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.
