Yesterday I tasted at Domaine Fabien Coche. It was the first opportunity I have had to run through an almost complete range of wines still available from our allocation. The 2014 vintage is terrific for whites and I have to say I was incredibly impressed with the wines in total but particularly with some of the less grandiose Villages appellations which really sang.
This family-run domain, based in Meursault, was created by Julien Coche in 1940 and began as just one hectare of vines. His son Alain took over from him, expanded the holdings, and earned a high reputation for the vintages he produced.
Alain is the cousin of Jean-Francois Coche of Domaine Coche-Dury. In fact it was not that long ago that the two domaines shared an almost identical family label (see alongside).
Today the domaine is run by Alain's son Fabien and the wines feature a new, modern label.
As you would expect the domaine has a rich selection of Whites from Meursault and nearby.
This is a great source for terrific white Burgundy, especially as we are offering the magnificent 2014's.
And whilst the wines of Coche-Dury are almost impossible to buy, even at a vast premium over release price, we offer the wines of Fabien Coche at reasonable prices.
If you love the acid of the 2014 Vintage these wines are not to be missed. The Bourgogne Chardonnay is from Meursault and is a killer!
Here is what is left, price per bottle......
40 bottles Bourgogne Chardonnay $45.95
