Reviews 95 points Wine Advocate "Aromas of citrus zest, crisp green pear, white flowers, grapefruit and pastry cream introduce the 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Les Caillerets, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered wine that's deep, concentrated and incisive, concluding with a long and pronouncedly chalky finish. (WK)" 94 points Vinous "...has an extremely defined bouquet of perfumed orange blossom, rosewater, crushed stone and pressed white flowers. You could nose this all day! The palate is well balanced and powerful, with intense salinity toward the pretty finish. (NM)"

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.
