Embarrassing Many a Grand Cru
2013 Coche-Dury Meursault

Coche-Dury's Meursault exists on its own plane. It marks a place where Burgundy's neat hierarchies crumble.

Coche-Dury's Meursault may very well be the greatest village wine on earth. There are Grand Crus that it puts to shame.

It hasn't gone unnoticed. Any time that we offer Coche-Dury's Meursault it always gets ugly and we have to make painful allocations.

This might sound trite, but Coche is special. The wines have an aristocratic flair, with a shocking combination of opulence and rigor. They are dramatic, densely mineral and possess a class and intensity that's heartbreaking.

The 2013 Meursault is beautifully elegant with a nice driving acidity and serious underlying structure. It's profoundly intricate in its interplay of fruit and textured minerality. Everything points to a very graceful and long aging curve.

I'm going to wrap this up. Coche-Dury Meursault can seem like a a ghost wine. It is rarely in the market and quickly disappears. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.

To order, email or call the store at (212) 980-9463.
