2009 Domaine Coche-Dury Meursault 1er Cru "Les Genevrieres"

SKU #1270622 96 points Vinous

 The 2009 Meursault Genevrières is similar in style to the Rougeots, which is to say quite big and rich, but here I find endless layers of minerality that frame the huge, building finish. The purity of the fruit is truly dazzling. (AG)  (8/2011)

92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright pale yellow. Orange blossom and minerals on the nose. Distinctly velvety in the mouth but a step up in energy from the Caillerets thanks to the wine's reverberating mineral underpinning. This compellingly creamy wine offers a superb balance of texture and acidity and shows no undue weight. Another wine that should offer relatively early charm.  (9/2010)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 A strikingly broad and well-layered nose features the classic subtle exoticism of a fine Genevrières together with ripe orchard fruit, lemon, spice and discreet wet stone hints. There is excellent density and a controlled power to the mouth coating and mineral-inflected flavors that are borderline painfully intense while terminating in a driving, focused and beguiling finish that delivers simply superb length. A stunning effort.  (6/2012)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2009 Meursault Genevrières is well-defined on the nose and seems quite rich vis-à-vis other vintages. But that does not obstruct the minerality and detail, which hints of brioche and popcorn that enhance its extravagance. The palate is well-balanced with very good weight: candied orange peel, citrus lemon, touches of hazelnut with a dense, almost introspective finish that will surely come out from under its shell with time.

Jancis Robinson

 Bit smudgy, could even be a herbal vapour with a kick at the end – some citrus or even citronella/lemongrass. Brilliant precision! Power and richness on the end. Cut glass, and so long. 18.5/20 Points.  (10/2010)

Additional Information:



- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
Specific Appellation:


- The town of Meursault is a prosperous village, with a Gothic town hall and narrow winding streets. It produces a small amount of red wine, but is justly famous for its whites. Although it has no Grand Cru vineyards, its Premiers Crus are justly famous, particularly Charmes, Poruzots, Perrières and Genevrières. A good Meursault has concentration, grip and backbone, in addition to its soft and rich fruit.
