2011 Domaine J. Confuron Cotetidot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Supple juicy attack, with quite some volume. A saline moment, pure and sophisticated, then some quite rustic tannins on the finish. This is well-done, it's got class. 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.
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.
The nose has some nice sweet flavours and the fruit on the palate feels ripe. Black fruits give the power with fresher red towards the back giving a lighter fresher feel. The finish is quite fragrant with a hazel nut character. 2014-20 Rating: 90 Derek Smedley MW, www.dereksmedleymw.co.uk (Dec 2013)
Vosne drive in evidence. Lots of sweetness. Good stuff! Racy 2015-2024 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2013)
A restrained but quite spicy nose of dark berries, plum and a touch of sandalwood. The supple, round and delicious middle weight flavors display mild austerity on the long, firm and serious finish. This will require up to a decade to be fully mature. 2019+ Rating: 88-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2013)

Ripe red fruit aroma with some spice. Ripe on the attack with dark liquorish fruit. Juicy middle palate. Quite rich tannins and plenty of them. A full and dense palate with a spicy aromatic finish. Good muscle to the tannic structure. All about structure. This is the most substantial Vosne Romanée I have tried. Very good. From 2016 Rating: 16 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing (Nov 2012)
