Domaine Morey Coffinet
2011 Bourgogne Blanc
La Reine Blanche
From one of the top growers and winemakers in the renowned vineyards of Chassagne, today’s Domaine Morey Coffinet 2011 Bourgogne Blanc is a truly super and superior wine!
We got our hands on every last case in the country, so please act quickly, We will run out of this wonderful white.
Beautifully made, with racy, delicious flavors from end to end. The wine has some butteriness and spice, but is wonderfully balanced. Fruit, spice and minerals all give this wine a harmonious balance.
Drinking beautifully, now, this wine shows great aging potential. We think that it could go for at least another 3 to 5 years and we’ll be holding onto a few bottles until at least 2020, just to see where this wine goes. The fruit that is currently present in the wine condense, but the acids are there to provide a backbone that will carry the wine for 5 years or more.
This is a very flexible and food-friendly wine. We recommend it as an accompaniment to a first course or with Hors d’oeuvres. Serve with baked brie, a baked chicken breast or a lightly prepared fish. Salad Nicosie, pork loin or salt cod would also work very well.
Light golden yellow with a greenish hue where light bends around the wine. After giving the wine a good swirl, big fat legs creep, while the wine settles quickly.
Scents of gingerbread, brioche, baked apple, lemon peel, and cool water from a spring-fed creek. Secondary aromas consist of butter and firm nectarines.
Flavors of citrus, passion fruit, starfruit. After swirling secondary flavors consist of nutmeg, subtle cinnamon, young nectarine, green papaya, and Asian tropical fruit. The wine has a racy acidic mineral structure showing off a fine zing at the tip of the tongue. After a moment, the wine rounds out, softening at the edges where it takes on a plushness.
Finish is bright, fresh, and lingering with a citrus zest. Also, softly dry with flavors reminiscent of baking spices.
