Download Complete Winemaker Notes

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 seven hectares across the appellation in total, four of which are dedicated to its outstanding white wine, in particular Chassagne Chardonnay, and three are dedicated to red. This specialist estate produces beautifully crafted wines that capture the intense aromas and flavor of their distinguished terroir like few other boutique wineries in the region. Capable of aging for decades, these impeccable wines have never been available in the United States before now.

Following floral notes it is the minerality that dominates this wine. A powerful example of balance and finesse typical of the appellation.
This wine has a great aging potential of 2-10 years and its acidity will only help that potential.
