The 1996 Coche-Dury Meursault Perrieres is the best Meursault I have tasted, and among the very best dry whites on my list of great bottles. It was fantastic when served back in 2002 at a memorable dinner at Restaurant Emerils in New Orleans. The bouquet was bursting with minerality and the caracteristic lemon aromas of the 1996 vintage. On the palate great length and focus, but also with a quite full and rich core of fruit. Really crisp acidity and offering great complexity. Summing up it had all the qualities I value in a great white Burgundy, and with a length and minerality normally only found in the Grand crus of Puligny – a truly memorable wine.
(Drink from 2015) Outstanding – 96p
Tasted 05/03/2002 at Restaurant Emerils in New Orleans

- The best village terroirs in Meursault – a historic view Single vineyard village wines are becoming more and more popular in Burgundy, as the focus on terroir and the quality of the different climates increases. Meursault is one of the appellations where the tradition with single vineyard village is becoming more deeply rooted in the Burgundian soil.

- Seize the wine – Henri Jayer, Richebourg 1985 Seize the wine … seize the day when you see the great bottle. Wine prices are going trough the roof and I’m pretty sure they will rise even further in the future. So if you find “The” wine at a expensive but resonably fair price on a restaurant or in a wine shop … seize ...

- Coche-Dury – King of Meursault Domaine J.-F. Coche-Dury is one of the very best white wine producers in the world, thus also in Burgundy. The Domaine is located in Meursault, and most of the wines comes from the appelation. Coche-Dury’s a bit of a myth among wine connoisseurs, and I have therefore tried to get behind the scene, and analyzed the ...
- WineHog rating system – more than points Tasting and rating wine is not exact science … and therefore I prefer to use a scale that reflects that wine is a living organism and that a wine can taste like 94 points one day … and 93 the next day … depending on the moon, the glass, temperature and or my mood!
