jean-françois coche-dury is one of the great figures of white wine making in the world. he took over the estate and his father in 1972, and over the years bought parcels of vines to reach the 10.5 hectares that the estate currently has, of which 8.5 hectares are planted with chardonnay and aligoté grapes. he applies a vinification that reinforces the natural expression of the terroir without ever modifying it: delicate pressing, regular stirring of the lees during the maturation in barrels, 50% of which are renewed each year. his style is inimitable, he creates pure and elegant wines, with aromas of vine flowers and toasted hazelnut, whose finesse and persistence are simply out of the ordinary. jean-françois coche-dury's extraordinary talents have earned him an unparalleled reputation. the wines are unfortunately too rare to satisfy all wine lovers. but this is an estate that every enthusiast of great chardonnay must taste at least once in his life. the meursault 1er cru genevrières is one of the most sought after wines by wine lovers.
