Again, like the Gevrey, this has all the ripeness one could wish for combined with flashing brightness and lift. The mid-palate and finish are actually quite tannic, but it is balanced by the fruit density. Fantastic village wine.

Rich strawberry compote aromatics. Very ripe Chambolle aromas. Expressive. Explosion of sweet summer fruit on the attack and then quite firm tannin blended with ripe fruit. This will take longer to come around. Good+ From 2015

Bright medium ruby. Pure aromas of blackberry and violet complicated by licorice, leather and fresh blood. Sweet, rich and very ripe, with roasted berry and chocolate flavors dominating. Slightly dry on the back end.
86 - 88/100

Discreet wood frames very ripe essence of red raspberry and pinot fruit aromas that give way to delicious but intense and quite serious middle weight flavors that evidence a hint of minerality on the mildly rustic and very firm and persistent finish. This is built to age and is a robust villages. 2017+
87 - 90/100

Notably dark crimson. Real raciness on the nose. Not as all-enveloping as some Chambolles but it was probably right to play the refreshment card in 2009. Juicy and sweet. Sweet and rich and very flattering but with just a very slightly putrid hint. More purity please! Easy to like even if not especially subtle. Serviceable. Just a tad too sweet? 2015-2020

There are touches of white pepper on the nose: cranberry leaf and wild strawberry, earthy notes developing in the glass. The palate has a tannic entry like the Vosne Village, good acidity, but quite rustic and “chunky” towards the finish. Fine.

Gentle red fruits nose, has charm and warmth. Quite rich but enlivened by crisp acidity; there's ample concentration here, and firm but not hard tannins, leading to a lively finish that's well balanced and long. Drink 2013-2020. (GOOD VALUE CHOICE)


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.
