"...One of the most underrated sources of high-quality white Burgundy in the Côte de Beaune..." - William Kelley, Wine Advocate, May 2019.
Fabien Coche is the fourth-generation vigneron in the Coche family which is one of the most famed families in Burgundy (Coche-Dury was also part of the family domaine until 1940). Fabien started working with his father at the domaine in 1998 and subsequently took over in 2005 and has his own distinctive labels, and quickly became the Coche of the current generation making the most waves.
Fabien Coche has an enviable collection of vineyard holdings - a total of 11 hectares spread across Meursault, Monthelie, Pommard and Auxey-Duresses - and there are more than 60% of vines that are over 60 years old, and have been practicing organic farming since 1998. The wines created are incredibly pure, made using new oak at a low 25% and a notable percentage of large format barrels. The style is somewhat between that of Coche-Dury and Roulot - having the acidity and purity of Roulot without the trademark SO2; and without the extravagant texture of Coche-Dury. As described by William Kelley, Fabien's wines "are not stylized, flashy wines, and they aren’t as dramatic as some of the region’s more sought-after domaines on release, but readers with the patience to cellar them will be amply rewarded.”
Today we are pleased to offer some of the Meursault En Premieur allocations we have received from Fabien Coche of the Vintage 2020 including Les Chevalieres, Clos du Pre de Manche 1er Cru (the first vintage!), and Goutte d'Or. The vintage 2020 was widely regarded as a fantastic vintage in Burgundy in which the whites (chardonnay) were said to have a "beautiful aromatic complexity", intense fruit but also "very good acidity" in spite of the high summer temperatures according to The Bourgogne Interprofession (BIVB).
