I was blown away by the power, verve and soil-driven complexity of Coche-Dury's 2001 Corton-Charlemagne. Full yellow in color, it’s approaching maturity but shows every sign of a continuing graceful evolution in bottle. Its vibrant apple, citrus peel and brown spice aromas and flavors have been joined by deeper notes of brioche, white truffle and porcini. This wonderfully tactile, plush wine boasts compelling sweetness leavened by lively acidity, and the musky, minerally, slowly building finish begs for a side of crustaceans. (ST) (8/2015)

The 2001 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is a rather exotic rendition of this great wine, revealing an expressive bouquet of peach, white currants, apricot preserve, oatmeal and a light framing of toasty new oak, bearing the signatures of the botrytis that marked the vintage. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, bright and ample, as structurally open-knit as the 2000 vintage but more powerful, textural and large-scaled. Like the 2000, it’s also drinking at its peak. The 2001 is a comparatively gourmand rendition of Coche’s Corton-Charlemagne that would pair well with traditional cuisine bourgeois. (WK) (4/2018)

We finished in grand style. Three Corton-Charlemagnes from Coche-Dury were easily among the most profound, monumental Burgundies I have ever tasted. I am not sure I own the vocabulary to do these wines justice. The 2001 Corton-Charlemagne was like a diamond in that each taste revealed a new facet as this extraordinary, explosive wine opened up in the glass. Sweet scents of lime peel and crushed rocks lingered on the eternal finish … I admit I didn’t taste the desserts. I was more than happy to spend a little extra time contemplating these transcendental, life-affirming wines. (AG) (3/2009)
