Lot #2438. Domaine Coche-Dury Corton-Charlemagne 2012

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 97+ NM.
"The aromatics unfurl with a sense of ease prioritizing finesse over power: beeswax, linden, lemon thyme and fresh pear. The palate is exquisitely balanced with fleeting glimpses of Seville orange and apricot. But there is more about the tension, the effortlessness and that it just rolls out across the finish like a huge Turkish rug. This is the kind of wine that exhausts superlatives. It is a measure of how busy I have been over the last few months that I forgot that I had tasted through Coche-Dury's 2012 at the Domaine back in November! How can you forget tasting one of the finest exponents of white Burgundy? Luckily enough, I stumbled upon the notes nestling among reams of 2013 . . . . wines that were quite simply astonishing. The two wines that rivet you to the spot at the Corton-Charlemagne, which is predictable, and the Meursault Genevrières, which might be less so. These were generally tensile, razor-sharp and deeply complex wines that will give pleasure to those lucky enough to receive allocations in the future." Wine Advocate #219, Jun 2015
