Pale crimson. Dry rather than sweet and opulent but very fresh and pretty. Not that concentrated but very good balance and attractively savoury. Much more appealing than many wines from supposedly superior appellations. (4/2014)

Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate
The 2009 Bourgogne Rouge is a flashy, exuberant wine with lovely fleshiness at this level. Sweet red berries, flowers and spices are some of the nuances that emerge from this radiant, tasty Bourgogne.

Food Pairing: Beef, Veal, Game(deer, venison), Poultry

Domaine was founded in 1920 by Jean Francois Coche grandfather. Jean Francois took over the domaine in the mid of 70s from his father Georges. Jean Francois Coche was in 1975 married with Odile Dury and this led to the formatin of Coche-Dury domaine. Since 2010, the domaine runs under the leadrship of Raphae, son of Jean Francois. Raphae has been invoveld in work at the domaine since 1999.

Coche Dury is by all standards one of the best producers of white Burgundy, a position that has occupied more than 20 years. The most impressive is that Jean Francois done so without large portofolio of Grand Cru Vineyards. Coche Dury has rather modest production and maintains a very high quality from AOC Bourgogne to the top of the range. Production aproximate 4.200 cases annually.

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.
