||2008 Domaine Coche-Dury Mersault Burgundy What sets Coche apart from the world's hordes of winemakers is more than his picking dates and harvesting techniques. It is dedication. With exceedingly few exceptions, producers throughout the world wish for their wines to be tasted between 10am and 11:30am, because somebody's told them the wines showed best during that time-frame. Coche demands that tastings be conducted after nightfall, "I'll be in the vineyards starting at dawn, so we must meet at night." Therein lies the answer as to why Coche has yields low enough that they can ripen, healthy bunches, and the conscientiousness to harvest only when the grapes are fully mature. Jean-Francois Coche-Dury is one of the greatest winemakers on planet Earth. He continues to produce dazzling wines from unbelievably tiny yields, taking the maximum risk by bottling his wines with no filtration.
