"The 2017 Meursault Les Chevalières gets my nod as the finest of Coche's lieux-dits this year, and it was showing especially well when I tasted it. Wafting from the glass with notes of lemon oil, white flowers, almond paste and subtle nutmeg, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a deep, tensile mid-palate built around a bright line of ripe acids, concluding with a long, chalky finish. Coche owns the last plot in Chevalières, touching Meix Chavaux. 91-93 points

Domaine Fabien Coche, which still trades in the United Kingdom under the Coche-Bizouard label, is one of the most underrated sources of high-quality white Burgundy in the Côte de Beaune. Alain Coche took his time, leaving his wines on the lees to mature at a leisurely pace for two winters, and produced classically balanced, textbook Meursault that evolved beautifully in the cellar; today, his son Fabien follows suit, with a few small refinements: today, the Coche harvest takes two weeks, not one, with each parcel brought in at optimal maturity, and there are more larger-format barrels in the cellar alongside the regular Burgundian pièces. These are not stylized, flashy wines, and they aren't as dramatic as some of the region's more sought-after domaines on release, but readers with the patience to cellar them will be amply rewarded."
