Coche is without question our most exclusive white wine, but it is also a wine which aims to reach beyond the expression of its vineyards, region and provenance. The old vines and high altitude are the fundamental factors responsible for the success of this wine. Year after year the great challenge lies in achieving a balance between its body and acidity in order to create a fresh wine with a tremendous ageing potential.
Coche shows an intense and profound minerality. Its aromatic profile is deeply complex, with beautiful toasty notes from the barrels as well as subtle hints of herbs which complement the soft floral and citrusy aromas of the wine perfectly.
