A nose of everything but obvious fruit. Floral, mineral, earthy, a heavenly entry which is both dry of flavour and sweet-textured. Explosive spice and mineral. Brilliant! L&S (Dec 2010)

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

One of a string of deliciously approachable 2009s from this domaine, this is a little oak-dominated but has sweet raspberry and red cherry fruit in abundance. Elegant and complex. 2-6 years. Rating: 94 Tim Atkin MW, (Feb 2011)

The Chambolle has a sweet, much more feminine nose than Confuron-Contetidot’s other 2009s, with a Vosne-like panache. The palate is more tannic than expected on the entry, chewy with good grip and a touch of white pepper, stern backbone with a dense, raspberry and red cherry finish. Fine. Rating: 90 Neal Martin, (Jan 2011)

Lightish and racy with some toastiness. Just a hint of malt. Easy to like but not the purest. Lots of impact. 2015-2020 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - (Jan 2011)

An extremely elegant nose of lacy and airy high-toned red berry fruit leads to delicate but focused and minerally medium-bodied flavors that are very Chambolle in character on the mid-palate though the lingering finish is quite firm as there is a touch of stems in evidence. 2017+ Rating: 89-92 Allen Meadows, (Jan 2011)

Moderately saturated ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of jammy berry liqueur and chocolatey roasted oak. Fat, sweet, and stuffed with concentrated black fruits but a bit heavy for Chambolle. Finishes with slightly drying tannins and a grenache-like quality. Rating: 87-89 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Jan 2011)

Domaine J. Confuron Cotetidot

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.
