The Coche name is well-known in Meursault, principally because of the renowned Jean-François Coche-Dury. Less well-known but certainly not to be missed is this domaine, established in 1940 and run by cousin-once-removed, Fabien Coche. As one would expect, he has excellent vineyard holdings principally in Meursault, Monthélie and Auxey-Duresses, and has supplemented these with purchased grapes from trusted sources. The harvesting is generally done later than other vignerons in the area, sometimes by as much as a week. The reds are not de-stemmed, and both the whites and reds undergo a very long, slow fermentation. The wines are then put into barriques – of which, as a general rule, 25 percent are new – for 18 to 20 months. Coche's wines are highly individual in style – they are designed to be aged for at least five to 10 years but will subsequently develop into some of the most well-balanced, beautifully structured wines of each appellation. You may notice that some of the wines, especially the Meursaults, carry the name Coche-Bizouard (rather than Domaine Fabien Coche); this is Fabien’s own-label négociant range. We have been buying in these wines since the early 1980s, offering as they do consistently good, affordable and classically styled Meursault.
