MORRELL FINE WINE AND SPIRITS Call 800.96.WINES (800.969.4637) • Visit us at • Complimentary delivery on all orders over $150 in NY and CT 28 bU rg U nd Y b uil T on Tr adi T ion W ith almost nine hectares spread out across over six communes the name Coche-Dury remains synonymous with Meursault. The reason for this is the unique yet utterly enjoyable style and principals that were created by Jean-Francois Coche, which are upheld to this day by his son Raphael and wife Charline. According to the Coche family their success is the result of a strict adherence to traditional values, which border on the ethics of the farmer-monks who once worked these lands. In the cellar the juice sees extended maceration on the lees, as well as a good portion of new oak. In the end, their Meursault emerges as a model of purity, yet rich and seductive with serious aging potential. ✦ Coche-Dury Meursault 2013 NM 92 » $465 "...Frankly, nobody achieves the precision like this. The palate is very flattering with great volume married with fine acidity...lively and vivacious with a long and tender finish that just goes on and on..." (1353134) Pre-arrival Wha T 's i n a n a M e? i t's a name that's hard to forget in this business, yet the Bret Brothers are up to the challenge of giving new meaning to the word Bret, and that is through creating some of the most stunning white wines that you are sure to find from the Mâconnais in Burgundy. Since setting up shop at the Domaine La Soufrandière in 2000, brothers Jean-Guillaume & Jean-Philippe have been seeking out unique micro-climates throughout the region to create leasing agreements that give them full control over the vines from start to finish. For them, it's all about producing the best possible fruit and allowing terroir to shine through in the finished wine. You can't argue with their principles, especially after tasting through the lineup. However, for our tastes, one wine truly stood out, and that was the mineral- infused and highly energetic Pouilly-Vinzelles les Quarts. ✦ Domaine La Soufrandière Pouilly- v inzelles les Quarts 2014 ST 91–92 » $54 "...Tactile, powerful limestone wine with intense citrus character and superb acidity...Conveys lovely inner-mouth aromatic perfume and lift."
