2010 Domaine Coche-Dury Meursault "Rougeots"

SKU #1276589 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright pale yellow. Classic Meursault aromas of orange, tangerine and hazelnut. Vibrant and very intense, with captivating saline character and a nutty nuance to the stone fruit and spice flavors. As young as this is, it's already quite creamy. Wonderfully rich and suave wine with outstanding finishing richness and an impression of energy that leaves the salivary glands quivering. This may ultimately merit an even higher score. 93+ Points (ST)  (9/2012)

 A very mild touch of reduction shaves the top notes off of the otherwise fresh, cool and citrusy nose that offers up mostly white orchard fruit and floral scents. There is excellent vibrancy and lovely detail to the equally fresh middle weight flavors that are still relatively tight and I particularly like the saline character of the focused and still linear finish that delivers especially fine length for a villages level wine. While this will be more approachable in 3ish years, it would not be surprising if it took 5 to 7 to reach its full apogee. In a word, lovely.  (7/2015)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2010 Meursault Rougeots is a bit rounder and more inviting than the Chevalieres at this stage. Here the fruit blossoms nicely to fill out the wine’s broad frame. There are a richness and creaminess in the Rougeots that make it surprisingly sumptuous and ample at this stage. At the same time, there is plenty of power waiting to emerge. If I were going to open a Coche 2010 early, I would probably start with the Rougeots. Anticipated maturity: 2016+. (AG)  (8/2012)

 Dry and cold year. Poor flowering, so very concentrated. Some millerandés grapes. Deep gold. Very lively, ripe and powerful with lots of savour and not that much reduction – though a little. You could lose yourself in the majesty of this nose. Then on the palate it’s very high in acidity and pretty youthful. Lots to chew on. Needs masses of time on the palate. But it’s a great wine. 18.5/20 Points  (11/2016)

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.
