Reviews 93 points Wine Advocate "The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Les Enseignieres wafts from the glass with notes of pear, green apple and white currants mingled with notions of fresh mint, toasted almonds and hazelnuts. Medium to full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, it's lively and concentrated, with a tightly wound core and an abundance of chalky, structuring dry extract. This is another cuvee that is performing especially well in 2019. (WK)" 94 points Vinous "The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Les Enseigneres has a beautifully defined bouquet with fine mineralite, a little more malic than the Meursault with fizzing energy. The palate has quite wonderful poise, a fine spicy entry and then a gradual build of intensity that is reminsicent of a Pucelles on the finish. Often overlooked for their Meursaults, this is one not to miss. (NM)" 92 points John Gilman "...The bouquet is already quite expressive, wafting from the glass in a mix of apple, peach, almond, chalky soil tones, spring flowers, vanillin oak and just a hint of iodine in the upper register. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and shows off lovely mid-palate depth, with good soil inflection, lovely focus and balance and a long, bouncy and succulent finish that will drink well from the moment it is released...

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.
