En Primeur | Domaine Coffinet-Duvernay 2019

We were delighted to introduce this important domaine to our portfolio last year. The Coffinets are part of Chassagne Montrachet’s wine aristocracy, having owned vineyards in the village since the mid-1800s. Born of a partnership between Laura Coffinet and Philippe Duvernay from Rully, who have created this fine 7 hectare domaine. Their holdings are exclusively in Chassagne Montrachet and the range is hugely impressive. Philippe doesn’t do any cold settling of the juice, preferring to leave it on the lees. He ferments in cask, allowing the natural rise in cellar temperature to let the lees enrich and feed the wine, and operates a very cautious use of bâtonnage on certain cuvées.

Coffinet-Duvernay’s 2019s reflect the individuality of their vineyards. The ten different cuvées on show here each express the glorious singularity of their unique terroirs. Philippe and Laura’s son Bastien has joined his parents at the domaine and is particularly excited by the 2019s. He believes they have more personality and are more characterful than some other recent vintages.

    Goedhuis, December 2020

    This lower lying village parcel is bottled separately to show off its unique character and position next to the mighty Criots Bâtard Grand Cru. A fuller and more concentrated style, this has flavours of quince and lime with a touch of freshly buttered toast from the oak. Subtle power with a bright, energetic finish.

    Neighbouring Maltroie, but always delivering such a different style, this Champgains is a brilliant golden-yellow colour, with honeyed fruit flavours and hints of vanilla. An intensely concentrated wine with a touch of toffee and a gentle acid freshness on the finish.

    A very appealing and approachable style. Bright characters of lemon and lime fruits, with a hint of white peach on the palate. Fresh and pure, this is designed for earlier drinking, while there is a touch of stone fruit richness on the finish.

    This extraordinary Premier Cru parcel is the envy of all the growers in the village: a unique plot of vines just below the great Le Montrachet! A beautifully refined and charming wine, this has a complex scent of chamomile and jasmine. Its creamy ripe fruit flavours flow through the palate and linger beautifully on the finish. Lovely.

    These vines in Caillerets’ chalky, stony soil are some of the domaine’s oldest at 78 years old. A slightly more powerful and less mineral Caillerets than some years, perhaps a reflection of the lower yields in 2019. Intense and hugely flavoursome, with notes of fresh croissant and Jersey cream. The chalky minerality on the finish gives an added lift to this high-class wine.

    Fairendes is a lieu dit within the better known Premier Cru of Morgeot and the Coffinets bottle this plot separately. They feel it is more graceful and poised, and that its unique quality would be lost if bottled with other parcels. A balance between creamy rich texture and bright mineral freshness. With flavours of clementine and ripe citrus fruits, this is a wonderfully discreet style. A very special wine.

    The position of this vineyard high on the hillside of Chassagne helps maintain an excellent freshness in this wine. Very aromatic with scents of fresh clotted cream and honeysuckle. On the palate there are rich flavours of brioche and crème caramel, but it is also very bright and lively. A rewarding style.

    Morgeot is a large Premier Cru comprising a number of small sub-climats. The emphasis is always on power and intensity and Les Grands Clos is one of its finest sites. Hints of Seville orange and freshly squeezed lime mingle with brioche and nuts. Very structured with a bright finish.

    A little backward at the time of tasting, but still possesses the lovely fresh yeasty, baked bread characters one so often finds in Chassagne. This has a firm touch of rusticity and good layers of complexity on the finish.
