About this Item

Meursault, 2008
1 (1 x 1) 750ml

The Coche-Dury estate was founded by Jean-François Coche’s grandfather in 1920. Jean-François Coche-Dury inherited the estate in 1972 and today runs the domaine with his son, Raphael. While they produce some of the best white wines from Burgundy, and have achieved cult status, their red Crus are equally as fine. The Coche-Dury wine-making practices are very traditional with exceptional attention to detail given.

Critics Ratings

‘It's been two years since I tasted my last bottle, and Jean-François Coche's 2008 Meursault Village is only getting better, unfurling in the glass with aromas of crisp green pear, citrus oil, sesame, hazelnuts and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, deep and incisive, it's tensile and concentrated, with racy acids, terrific mid-palate volume and a long, penetrating finish.’ - William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 93+/100 (Apr 2021)

‘Toasty and quite rich on the nose with mild struck-match character and masses of acidity on the palate. Vivacious and still very youthful with some lemon cough-pastille character. Dry but impressively long finish. Crystalline.’ – Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17+/20 (Jan 2015)

‘Peach and white flowers on the nose; a real essence of Meursault perfume. Then creamy-rich and sweet, with soft citrus flavors dominating. Finishes with lovely lingering sweetness of fruit. Ridiculously sexy village wine.’ - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, 91/100 (Sep 2010)
