Fourth-generation vigneron Fabien Coche took over his family’s domaine in 2005. Hailing from one of Burgundies most famed families (Coche-Dury was part of the same domaine until 1940 and is run by his cousin Raphael), Fabien has quickly become the Coche of the current generation making the most waves. His enviable vineyard holdings total nearly 11 hectares spread across Meursault, Monthelie, Pommard and Auxey-Duresses. Organic farming has been practiced here since 1998 for the 40 plots of vines that the family owns. Average vine age is impressive with more than 60% of vines over 60 years old.

Perrieres stands alone in Meursault as its finest wine and many regard this vineyard as a candidate for upgrading to Grand cru status. Located on the southern border of the appellation bordering Puligny Montrachet, here the aromas and flavours and structure of this fabulous premier cru site are very distinct with real intensity and lift and perhaps more citric character.
