Regular price £85.35
The intimate Domaine Coffinet-Duvernay is located in the illustrious village of Chassagne, in the southern Côte de Beaune. The estate is owned by Phillippe Duvernay and his partner Laura Coffinet who set out on their winemaking venture with just seven vineyards, including the Grand Cru Batard Montrachet. The estate encompasses seventeen acres across the appellation in total, ten of which are dedicated to its outstanding white wine, in particular Chassagne Chardonnay, and seven are dedicated to red. This specialist estate produces beautifully crafted wines that capture the intense aromas and flavour of their distinguished terroir like few other boutique wineries in the region.
1er Cru Les Blanchots Dessus 2021
The 1er Cru Les Blanchots Dessus shows many of the profound qualities that make for great Montrachet. Honey, herbal notes such as mint or thyme, a concentration of apple, pear, and tropical fruits, and an earthy component of truffle or mushroom make this wine concentrated, rich and intense, yet elegant.
