(made from 100% tiny millerandé grapes, according to Raphael Coche): Pale color. Vibrant aromas of orange and lime oil and musky spices. Compellingly sweet and concentrated but almost brutally youthful today, with strong menthol and mineral elements contributing to an impression of power. A bit higher in acidity than the preceding wines but its serious energy and mentholated aspect comes as much from terroir and the very low yield. Finishes fresh, dry, firm and very long. This will eventually go honeyed in the bottle, but not for a while.
Domaine Jean-Francois Coche-Dury
Meursault is the first great white wine area that one stumbles upon on leaving Beaune. Unlike other white dominated appellations in Burgundy, Meursault has no grand cru vineyards. It nonetheless has significant flair and power which make up for this deficiency. Indeed, if tasted blind some of these wines could even surpass other Burgundian grand crus. They are no fainting daisies. This may partially be due to Meursault's lower water table which enables the roots to delve deep in the soil picking up many trace minerals and which further stresses the vines. In addition, the cellars are more profound and cooler, enabling long fermentations, which increase complexity and longevity. Some interesting red wines are also made.
