Almost sweet!. Very easy gentle style, open, gentle and enveloping ripe pure fruit. Makes one salivate. Just comes on stronger and stronger. L&S (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.

Mid crimson. Solid stuff with lots of fruit in reserve. Still a tad dry but it should all emerge eventually. 2017-2027 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2013)

Here the aromatic profile is completely different with dark berries, plum, spice and violets. There is fine concentration to the velvet textured medium weight flavors that possess plenty of dry extract that successfully buffers the otherwise very firm and moderately rustic tannins on the exceptionally long finish. This is very Nuits and clearly built to age so there is no point buying this if you do not intend to cellar if for the long-term. 2023+ Rating: 90-93 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jan 2013)

Rating: 92 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com(Dec 2012)

Dark pastille fruit. Supple and dark and juicy with velvet tannins. Very textural. Very harmonious and not heavy at all. Smooth and deep and very fresh on the finish. Fine. From 2014 Rating: 18 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.
