@Delectable Wine this is the Beaune 1er. Pop and pour. A touch austere at first, but really needed air to get going. After 1.5 hrs much more giving. On the nose: a touch of game, pure wild strawberry, soft cola, a hint of stems. On the palate: fantastic acidity, savory red fruit, which complements the nose so well, brambles, and a dusting of tannin on the close...stunning with some air. — a day ago
Light canary gold color, bright and young. An unmistakably Coche nose with notes of Meyer lemon, crushed white stone, tan spice, petroleum jelly, ripe kiwi fruit and some oak. Rich, big, and expansive in the mouth. At age ~15, it still has a strong core of acidity and it’s well matched against luscious fruit that the vintage amply provides. Lasting finish. Wow! Still early in its life journey. If this is Village juice, my mind wanders and ponders what the 1er and GC juice might taste like today. — 6 days ago
Amazingly fresh and bright with traces of it's former molinerality. Lemon curd, ricotta and kiwi with bright acid.
Still medium bodied with hints of papaya and kumquats. Shortbread crust.
Slightly bitter and nutty on the finish. But pairs beautiful with food. — 2 days ago
Pop and pour, notes from 2 hrs open. On the nose: lovely plum.and blackberry, oak spice, soft cocoa powder, soft herbs in the background; very clearly delineated flavors. On the palate: fantastic acidity and density; spicy strawberry, and dark fruit...excellent tannin on the spicy finish. This is definitely structured to improve with some age, but it is already so drinkable now. Yum! — 8 days ago
Nose has cranberry, blackberry, over-ripe raspberry, prune, black licorice and muddy garden soil, ripe plum and melted butter.
Palate has dried blackberry, raspberry, dried cranberry, black licorice, medium acidity with a long finish; Great wine.
1500ml means your care. ❤️ Decanted 5H, much more time appreciated.
Paired to Asian-style food, tonight with Taiwanese Five Spice Pork (Lu Rou Fan | 卤肉饭) over Jasmin rice with lightly fried eggs from our private egg factory in the backyard. Locally raised NY pork (Highland Farm, Old Chatham, NY). — 5 days ago
Nose is dynamite. Meyer lemon. Discreet oak. Floral, wet stones, wet earth, peaches? Superb delineation on the nose between, earth, mineral, flowers and fruit. As it opens more lime pith, more slate? Almost Mosel like. Wow, acid, concentration off the charts. Really young, but so clean, so pure and so long. Also initially closed. What density and what amazing material. Really nice texture and again, this is so mineral driven it’s crazy. Such a wealth of material here.
As it airs some spice develops. This seems really backwards and needs time but also is so so fine. Could be Chassagne. Explosive mineral finish and so earthy. This is as old school as St. Aubin gets. Saline, rocky and earthy. But finish is clipped as a function of its youth but man is this promising. — 14 days ago
Very expressive aromas of flowers, some herbal notes, clearly whole clusters and a lot of fruit that we find also on the palate that is round, fairly supple of medium body at the most, nicely balanced, a few years in the cellar will do this wine so good but it is very enjoyable now. 89-90
Un nez très expressif, vendanges entieres, floral et herbacé, du fruit à revendre tout comme en bouche, qui est assez ronde et souple, bel équilibre, un bon vin qui pourra se conserver quelques années mais agréable en ce moment. 89-90

Took time to reveal itself, a little muted and flat to start with, opened up more and the crispness started to come a little with some air. Good but not the usual level for this domaine. 88-89
Discret et un peu mou au depart, l’air lui fait du bien et il se livre un peu plus, bien au final mais pas au niveau habituel de ce domaine. 88-89 — 6 days ago
Nose is so beguiling. Instantly seductive. Slow ox then 3 hrs in the decanter. Beautiful wine. So mineral. Meyer lemon, candied fruits, wet stone, vanillin. Palate does a delicate dance before a huge finish. Slightly closed right now, give these time and/or air. Lovely stuff. — 6 days ago
