Domaine Coffinet-Duvernay's 2017s
The Coffinet family are very much part of Chassagne Montrachet’s wine aristocracy, having owned vineyards in the village since the mid-1800s. As with many Burgundian families, there are many offshoots, the result of generations of intermarriage with other famous local names. Our latest new discovery stems from Fernand Coffinet, whose daughter Laura met Philippe Duvernay from Rully, to create the exciting under-the-radar estate of Domaine Coffinet-Duvernay.
We have tasted the estate’s wines over a period of 12 months and are delighted to introduce an outstanding selection of their stunning 2017 vintage. 2017 is rightly hailed as one of Burgundy’s greats for white wines, and this fabulous range exemplifies both the class of the vintage as well as the depth and quality of this exciting Domaine. In our view this is a true star in the making; they’re quite sensational.
Their vineyard sites will make the most ardent Burgundy lover’s nose twitch with excitement and interest. Every collector is on the hunt for the highest quality vineyards whose price tag is still fair. Coffinet-Duvernay’s 7 hectares of vines are split between village, eight different Premiers Crus and a gem of a parcel of Grand Cru.
Whilst some of the plots are rather small making availability limited, it is hard to find a more exciting portfolio in Chassagne.
