"A tale of two scents" -- both so signature, telling and alluring.
2012 Coche Dury Meursault. The Coche Flinty nose. Developed lemon curd and heady aromas with a hint of butter over time.
Also Buttery on the palate with a finish that pulls in the generous wine with a tight rope of acidity.
Ultimately Primary but still delicious... we ended up wishing we got the 2003 which was also on the list, haha! Still one of our favourite things to do, which is to have a Coche in a French garden.
That Rayas smell. Sweet, herbal, cigar box broth. (One of us said Chinese medicine (!)) A lovely brownish red colour, ever so slightly faded.
So soft and velvety on the palate. No heat, no rough edges, just pure and wholesome liquid gold. Gentle finish with lingering length. Fades away with cherries, dried fruit. This was the legend Jacques Reynaud's last vintage before he passed in 1997. Long may his legacy live on.
