The sauvage, mineral and structured side of the personality of Nuits is a lovely counterpoint to the ripeness of the year, and this is a bright and brilliantly defined jewel of a wine, with density of colour and flavour and precision of cut.

Intense, dark and slightly cassis aroma. Sweet on the attack. Plenty of plump fruit wrapped round a straight and assertive core in the middle of the palate, which is driven by the tannins. This has energy. The finish is well defined and long. Plenty of potential. Fine+. From 2016

Saturated deep ruby. Deeply fruity aromas of blackberry, smoke, licorice and pepper. Large-scaled, very ripe and creamy, but with terrific sappy energy to the black fruit and spice flavors. This compellingly broad wine finishes very long, with a serious Vosne-side spine.
90 - 93/100

An expressive nose of spicy and floral red and black raspberry is at once rich yet serious on the palate with good delineation and volume on the textured, rustic, intense and old school-style finish. I quite like the robust muscularity when it comes to the wines of Nuits but it’s not for everyone as there isn’t much finesse or refinement. 2021+
90 - 92/100

The nose has good fruit intensity with cranberry leaf and raspberry, that peppery note becoming stronger with aeration. The palate is tannic on the entry, Pinot doing Chinon, good balance, obdurate tannins that lead to a dry but persistent finish. Excellent.

Lean intense nose, with aromas of raspberries and violets. Medium-bodied but intense, with generous concentrated fruit balanced by firm tannins. Overall, this is structured and persistent. Drink 2014-2022.


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.
