Robert Parker – 90
The 2017 Bourgogne Blanc opens in the glass with a pretty and youthfully expressive bouquet of crisp green orchard fruit, white flowers and hazelnuts. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with a bright spine of acidity that structures the wine’s generous core of fruit. RaphaÃ«l Coche opted to supplement grapes from the domaine’s holdings with some purchased fruit this year, and the resulting wine is very fine indeed.
Anticipated maturity: 2021-2037
Burghound – 88
An extremely fresh nose speaks of mostly ripe apple, citrus and matchstick aromas. The sleek, juicy and utterly delicious middle weight flavors possess good mid-palate density before concluding in a lingering finish. This could use a bit more complexity, but the underlying material should enable it to develop more over the next few years.
