Coche-Dury produces some of the very greatest white wines coming out of Burgundy, which have even achieved cult status. The ingredients at the root of this success are mostly no secret, they also apply to several other producers of exceptional wines: prime vineyard land, constant work in vineyard and cellars, and rigorous yield limitation. However in Jean-François Coche-Dury’s case they are taken to a level of perfection which would appear difficult to equal.
The 2019 Meursault Les Rougeots reveals notes of crisp Anjou pear, white flowers, orange oil, fresh bread, almond paste and vanilla pod. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it's elegantly muscular, with terrific concentration, lively acids and chalky grip, concluding with a long, resonant finish. This is beautifully balanced and built to age. Date: Jan 2022; Drink: 2025-2050; Rating: 94Points; William Kelley; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
