When a Vosne-man does the Ech and a Flagey-chap vinifies the Vosne hill. It’s one of those nights — both were really strange! We waited till the next evening. The funk blew off, but oddities remained. Oh well, we were happy to drink it anyway...
Burgundy for lunch with #hidesommteam . Jean-Francois Coche-Dury produces some of very greatest and rarest white wines in Burgundy, wines that are taken to a level of perfection difficult to equal. What really made me believe that this is a true fact is that the other night one of our guests ordered one of his bottles from our list, which unluckily had just been sold to another table. We came back to him with different options from other producers but the guest said that he really wanted one of the Coche-Dury wines because they were extremely difficult to find. No matter the price, he chose another bottle, four times more expensive than the one he had chosen initially, just for the privilege to be able to drink it.
The Coche-Dury Meursault Perriers 2014 is a truly magnificent wine, starting out intense and tight, but after some time in the glass revealing what makes Perrieres the most elegant and persistent of the premier crus. £2410 on #hidewinelist Tasting notes by @enryferri #hidelondon#olliedabbous#hedonismwines#cochedury#cochedurymeursault#meursaultperrieres#burgundywine#premiercru
