In November this was showing well, dense and rich and also lifted, with precision. Round as a Gevrey should be but there's mineral terroir here too. Excellent village wine.

Full, dark and slightly spicy aroma. Sweet attack. Juicy and broad. It’s not heavy. Focus on the fruit and really ripe tannin. The tannins are certainly not velvet they are firmer than that, but really good and ripe. It works. A bit of muscle. Good to very good. From 2014

Bright medium ruby. Sexy aromas and flavors of blackberry, mocha, pepper, menthol and brown spices. More energetic and penetrating than the Nuits or Vosne villages, with more inner-mouth perfume. Finishes with a firm tannic spine and very good persistence.
87 - 89/100

A very Gevrey nose features pungent earth, underbrush and cool dark berry fruit aromas that lead to equally earthy, complex and impressively persistent flavors that display more than a little minerality. I very much like the balance here and this should handsomely repay 6 to 8 years of cellar time. 2016+

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.
