Tasting Notes

A fresh, cool and pure nose is composed by notes of pear, apple and citrus before giving way to delicious, round and relatively opulent flavors that coat the palate with dry extract on the acceptably complex and persistent finale. This should drink well on the young side though it should be capable of rewarding a few years of bottle age too.

The Producer

Fabien Coche

Fabien Coche, a fourth-generation winemaker, took over the family estate in 2005. Coming from one of the most renowned families in Burgundy (Coche-Dury was part of the same estate until 1940 and is run by his cousin Raphaël), Fabien has quickly become the Coche of the current generation that is making the most waves. His enviable wine-producing properties total nearly 11 hectares divided between Meursault, Monthelie, Pommard and Auxey-Duresses. Fabien Coche's father is a first cousin of Jean-Francois Coche-Dury and not so long ago the two estates shared almost identical labels. Fabien started working with his father in 1998 and since 2005, he has taken over and now has his own distinctive labels.

Organic farming has been practiced here since 1998 for the 40 plots of vines owned by the family and which now have experience of 20 vintages. The average age of the vines is impressive here with more than 60% of the vines over 60 years old. The wines from this estate are incredibly pure, with few visible traces of the winemaker's hand, with a low percentage of new oak (25%) and a notable percentage of larger barrels. Fabien's wines have superb acidity and purity. Here, we simply find a real depth of old vines that gives us some of the purest expressions of each vineyard.
