2011 1er Cru Derrière la Grange Domaine J. Confuron Cotetidot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
|Vineyard||Derrière la Grange|
Light cherry red. Broad and spicy nose. Some energy and confidence here. It finishes a tad dry at the moment but there is much tucked in here. Lots of interest – rare for 2011 which is generally quite simple. 2018-2028 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2013)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
An exceptionally pretty and admirably pure nose of red currant, spice and mineral hints merges seamlessly into detailed, vibrant and utterly delicious medium-bodied flavors that echo the minerality of the nose. There is excellent balance and refined tannins on the mildly austere but beautifully lingering finale. Note however that even though the structure is fine grained it’s dense and very firm so patience will be required. 2023+ Rating: 90-92 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2013)

(monopole, even if someone else uses the name on the label) A ripe, perfumed aroma. Supple texture and fluid with sweet fruit and minerality. Pure and fresh on the finish. Red pastille fruit at the end coupled with freshness and florality on the elegant long finish. Fine. From 2017 Rating: 18.25 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing (Nov 2012)
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.
