Domaine Coche-Dury produces some of the very greatest white wines in Burgundy, probably the most sought-after of all white Burgundy estates. It has even achieved a cult status!
Jean-François took over his father’s estate called “Coche-Bouillicaut”, but the domaine was already established in the 1920’s by his grandfather Léon Coche. He changed the domaine’s name into Coche-Dury, after the surname of his wife. Jean-François officially retired in 2010. His son Raphaël, who has been working together with his father since 2003, now runs the business. The domaine is based in Meursault, where most of their vineyards are situated. The most sought-after wine in his portfolio is actually from the Corton-Charlemagne vineyard, which is produced in rather small quantities.
