One of these surprising young wines where there are really no fruit aromas, all is salt and mineral, and yet the minerals have the succulence and juicy length of ripe fruit and this is serously vinous and long. L&S (Dec 2010)

Delicate berry nose. Medium-bodied but supple and fleshy, concentrated and backed by fine-grained tannins; pure, stylish, and persistent. Drink 2013-2020. Rating: ****17.5 Stephen Brook, Decanter.com (Feb 2011)

Compared to the Vosne Suchots, this has a light, floral bouquet with fine definition, scorched earth notes developing with time. The palate is tannic and masculine, perhaps lacking the harmony that others show, a little loose on the finish. Rating: 89 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com (Jan 2011)

A more elegant nose features cool and pure aromas of high-toned red pinot fruit and cherry liqueur that dissolves into rich, refined and equally pure middle weight flavors that are supple and precise before culminating in a mineral-driven, firm, dusty and long finish. A wine of harmony. 2019+ Rating: 90-92 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2011)

Bright ruby-red. Bright aromas of blueberry, blackberry and violet, complicated by a wild gamey aspect. Juicy and mineral-driven on the palate, with plenty of verve and lift for the year. Finishes tight and firmly tannic, with sneaky length. Just a light jammy note on the finish to hint at the wine's 13.8% alcohol. Rating: 89-92 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Jan 2011)

Good concentration on the aroma. Sweet and spicy; darker and more liquorish. This has some denser muscle and substance. Thicker tannins. The balance is here together with good layering on a quite compact, firm and dense palate. The wine is fresh on the finish. Towards Fine. From 2015 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing (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.
