Fourth-generation vigneron Fabien Coche took over his family's domaine in 2005. Hailing from Burgundian royalty (Coche Dury was part of the same domaine until 1940 and is run by his cousin Raphael), Fabien has quickly become the current-generation Coche making the most waves. His enviable vineyard holdings total approximately 25 acres spread across Meursault, Pommard, St Aubin and Puligny-Montrachet.
Fabien Coche's Bourgogne Cote D'Or Pinot Noir is the estate's entry-level red bottling and offers a superb introduction the estate's style and quality. The wine is assembled from four parcels in Meursault and Pommard, with all the grapes destemmed. The wine carries the Bourgogne Cote D'Or appellation, which is a new AOC and is considered superior to the broader Bourgogne appellation. Fabien uses an ancient and relatively obscure Burgundian production method called "chapeau immerge" in which a dense cap is allowed to form during fermentation and is left untouched (no punching down). Fabien believes that this creates a more delicate, less manipulated wine with greater purity of flavor and fruit.
100% Pinot Noir the wine is grown on vines that are approximately 30-60 years old, in soils of limestone and clay. The wines are hand-harvested, destemmed, cold-stabilized and fermented. Aged for 12 months in 25% new French oak barrels, 75% used French barrels.
