Very pale color. Orange and lemon pith, wet stone and a whiff of marzipan on the slightly reduced nose. Wonderfully creamy and fine-grained in the mouth, saturating the entire palate with orange, dusty stone and ginger flavors. Superb citric cut keeps it fresh and extends the very long finish. Outstanding wine, and true to its terroir.

Surpassing even Coche’s Corton-Charlemagne in this vintage, the 2009 Meursault 1er Cru Perrieres unfurls in the glass with a lovely bouquet of Anjou pear, green pineapple, white flowers, hazelnut and citrus oil. Full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, it’s textural and enveloping, but underpinned by the most tensile acid structure of any of Coche’s 2009s, concluding with a long and chalky finish.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040
