Coche Branco, Douro White, Niepoort 2015-En Primeur (case of 6)
There are many Burgundian look-a-likes out there, but consider something that is this good (and by good read incredible), which is produced from indigenous varieties… wow! Principally Rabigato, Codega and Arinto, grown on granite soils at an altitude of 690750m; fermented in used French barriques, full malolactic fermentation in oak, and then 12 months maturation in barrels. Coche is a considered, mineral-driven, fresh and lithe white with an exquisite floral quality, very pure citrus and peach fruit, a little smoke and flint and some butter richness. Intense, concentrated, complex, textured, mineral and long. That’s a full house, isn’t it? From 2019 to 2025.
