Coche Dury benchmarking tasting!

March 9, 2018

Too often we have had wines from Coche Dury coming out as  “#1 wine of the evening”  … So it was time to have as theme the “Who can beat Coche Dury?” 🙂 .  The tasting was very blind and all wines were revealed only at the very end of the tasting.  We were 5 tasters and love white Burgundy, so we put in there our best contenders.  The bad news is that we got it all wrong in guessing what was what… But the good news is that we found two wines that were ranked better than the Coche Meursault 2008 which is one of our benchmarks… Lot of fun and great evening!!

2011 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chenevottes
Smoke, very mineral nose, hint of citrus… taste huge mineral, loads of citrus, lenght of 30 sec, still perfectly young, a bit uni-dimensional and lacking the complexity of the Boillot (93 points)

2016 Domaine Henri Boillot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Perrières
Absolutely killer wine!! Beautiful nose of smoke, citrus, huge mineral, oyster shell… taste of citrus, mineral, lenght of 40 sec, long long aftertaste, became only better and better with aeration! (97 points)

2008 Coche-Dury Meursault
Nose of hazelnut, grilled smoke, yellow apple, delicious, hint of flint stone… Taste of delicious grilled hazelnut, striking citrus, laser sharp minerality, very delicious, very complex, lenght of 40 sec! (95 points)

2010 Joseph Drouhin Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Blanc
Very nice nose of flintstones… Very rich and delicious citrus, nice lenght (96 points)

2014 Lamy-Caillat Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets
Light nose of flintstones, lemon, super mineral… Delicious mineral, loads of citrus, lenght of 30 sec… delicious wine with upwards potential, still painfully young! (94 points)
