Bourgogne Blanc, Domaine Coche Dury 2017
The 2017 Bourgogne Blanc, unlike the previous vintage, comes entirely from the domaine in Meursault, the 2016 having been supplemented with fruit from the Mâconnais in order to maintain a two-year barrel rotation. It has a well-defined bouquet with scents of apple blossom and hints of coconut and orange blossom. The palate is expressive on the entry, which features a touch of lemongrass, and very well balanced, leading to a precise, saline, approachable finish. 2020 - 2027

The 2017 Bourgogne Blanc opens in the glass with a pretty and youthfully expressive bouquet of crisp green orchard fruit, white flowers and hazelnuts. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with a bright spine of acidity that structures the wine's generous core of fruit. Raphaël Coche opted to supplement grapes from the domaine's holdings with some purchased fruit this year, and the resulting wine is very fine indeed. 2021 - 2037
