Tasting Notes: This Pinot Noir is made from fruit from Pommard and Meursault. Elegant structure with pretty, plush red fruit notes. The fruit is destemmed and ages for 12 months in a small portion of new barrel and the rest in older barrel. Fabien Coche is the cousin of the famous Coche Dury. The family vineyards were split up in the 1940s and Fabien has now taken over from his father Alain.

Food Pairing: Duck, Goose and Game Birds

Created in 1940 and formerly known as Coche-Bizouard, the Domaine Fabien Coche cultivates all the nobility of the great wines of Burgundy . Located in Meursault (21 Côte d`Or), this family estate has 12 hectares of vines spread over Meursault, Pommard, Auxey-Duresses, Monthélie, Saint-Romain, Saint-Aubin and Puligny-Montrachet. The Domaine Coche Fabien uses traditional methods for the production of its wines: vineyard work, farming, bottling ... every step is done so as to ensure production of exception. Preserving the nature of the soil is one of the main concerns of the producer, which limits the use of chemicals (plowed soil, environmental protection, etc.).

The Grape
Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy`s Côte d`Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climates of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
