Gorgeous density of fruit, very sweet and focused. There is precision to the edge of the palate and a good firm core. The tannins are ripe and supple smooth, but firmly supportive. An elegant and refined Mazis with a straight and vigorous finish. Long and assertive finish drive on the finish. Nudging into very fine. From 2016/17

Good medium red. Compelling, nuanced aromas of raspberry, smoky underbrush, game, minerals and dried rose. Dense and ripe, with sappy, peppery notes that really vibrate in the mouth. There's a sexy, savory umami quality and captivating soil tones here that really caught my attention. Serious tannins are hidden today but will require extended cellaring. The early malo makes this easier to taste today than a number of Confuron's other cuvees
91 - 94/100


Vignerons since the seventeenth century, the Confuron family even have a strain of Pinot Noir named after them - Pinot Confuron. The domaine has several Grands Crus vineyards as well as the Premier Cru vineyard of Les Suchots, making it one of the very top domaines of the Côte de Nuits. Yves Confuron follows his family tradition of whole-bunch fermentation, giving an extra scent on the nose due to the stems of the grapes remaining intact, and picking very late. One of the strengths of Confuron Cotetidot wines is their ability to age and develop, due to the low yields and old vines that are used, causing them to be more approachable in the medium to long term.
