An Ensemble of Elegance and Energy

Domaine Coche-Dury's adroitness in vineyard stewardship is evidenced by the triumphant 2017 Meursault Caillerets. This particular parcel, grappling with slight frost early in the year, later benefitted from an overall warm and dry season, resulting in grapes that achieved optimal ripeness while maintaining their hallmark acidity.

 

A Vintage Speaks: The Taste of Terroir

The 2017 growing season brought with it a confluence of conditions that nurtured the Chardonnay grapes into expressing a vivid terroir articulation. On sampling, one is greeted with an enticing bouquet epitomised by fresh citrus, acacia blossom, and just-ripe orchard fruits ensnared by a whisper of smoky minerality. Upon sipping, there's a remarkable weight and texture playing against a backbone of steely acidity—a hallmark of this Meursault parcel.

The luminous golden hue entices the eyes while the opulent mouthfeel caresses the tongue, leading to a prolonged finish that leaves one yearning for yet another taste. It is emblematic of what connoisseurs have come to expect from this esteemed domaine.

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. This is one of the high points of Coche-Dury's 2017 portfolio and will be worth special effort to seek out.
