Fourth-generation vigneron Fabien Coche took over his family’s domaine in 2005. Hailing from some of Burgundies most famed families (Coche-Dury was part of the same domaine until 1940 and now run by his cousin Raphael), Fabien is making big waves across Burgundy. His vineyard holdings total nearly 11 hectares spread across the appellations of Meursault, Monthelie, Pommard and Auxey-Duresses. Organic farming practices since 1998 for the 40 plots of vines that the family owns and average vine age is quite impressive with more than 60% of the vines over 60 years old.

From the lieu-dit of Les Clous which has more limestone soil giving a fresher finer aspect to the aromas and the structure. This vineyard is full south facing and situated between the village Auxey and its neighbouring hamlet of Petit Auxey to the west with the vines averaging 30 years old. Just 20% new oak used.

Tasting Note:
Fine fresh dark red berry aromas. Real finesse here with very fine and more substantial tannins from the limestone finishing with lingering perfume. Bright crunchy and very moreish. A great value.

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with High acidity and Medium tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
