Great bottle of Coche. Steely and mineral with salty tones as well. Drinks like great white burg.

2011.
First let me say that I'm a big fan of the Niepoort still wines. That said, I've always been put off by the name of this cuvee "Coche". It requires a certain level of hubris to compare your wine to one of the great white Burg houses.
It also sets it up to underwhelm the drinker, if they've ever enjoyed Coche Dury.
It's solid, and the oak treatment has some Coche-like characteristics, but it's not even in the same ball park.

I finally got to try the "Coche" from Niepoort. It needs much more time in bottle to integrate that oak...very well made, but right now it's pretty compact...built for age, not speed. I can easily see this go up a few points in 3-4+ years.

2011 So far probably one of the best Portuguese white wine I tasted - so Burgundy like a real purity and delicacy ! A very good job done by the Niepoort team 😄

Delicious! Honey, mineral, acid, all in balance.

2017 Niepoort Branco. HB for Barry M. Not as good as the last bottle, but still delicious. Lean and fresh.
