Healthy dark red. Superripe aromas of black raspberry, animal fur and roasted meat. Very ripe but classically dry and backward; less open-knit today than the village Vosne, with the gamey quality carrying through on the plate. Finishes with ripe, spreading tannins and lingering notes of minerals and spice. Drinking range: 2020 - 2027 Rating: 90+ Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com(Mar 2015)

Dark, savoury black cherry fruit. Delicious perfume, but the overall impression is very restrained and condensed. Needs time. 2018-2028 Rating: 17 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2014)
(the majority of this comes from Champs-Chenys, which is situated next to Charmes and it tends to be more elegant than most Gevrey villages wines). While the fruit aspects are similar to those of the Nuits there is even more earth influence that extends to the intense, rich and velvety medium weight flavors that brim with dry extract. The mouth feel is round to the point of being suave though there is a lovely minerality that adds lift to the very firm but not hard or aggressive finish. A fine yet decidedly serious villages that is built to age. 2022+ Rating: 89-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jan 2014)
Bright, dark red. Musky black fruits and game on the nose. Good shape and complexity in the mouth, with dark berry and dark chocolate flavors lifted by minerals and spices. Finishes with serious dusty tannins and a suggestion of lees. Rating: 88-90 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar(Jan 2014)
This is slightly lifted; red pepper spice. Elegant and supple; sweet tannins and it has super energized. Really a perfumed and fresh finish. Wonderful harmony and freshness. From 2017. Rating: 16.5 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Dec 2013)
Domaine J. Confuron Cotetidot
Vignerons since the seventeenth century, the Confuron family has always selected and propagated vines to ensure that their plant material produces the highest quality, and they even have a clone of Pinot named after them - 'Pinot Confuron'.
The domaine has several Grands Cru vineyards as well as two hectares of the great Vosne Romanée Premier Cru 'Les Suchots'. There are around 12 hectares in all. The vines have never seen chemical weedkillers, and are ploughed and managed organically.
The Confurons have always used whole-bunch fermentation, picking very late, which really is a necessity if the stems are to be properly ripe and not give green flavours to the wine. A bit like the Thévenets with their whites in the Mâconnais, they pick so much later that they can seem to have different vintages to everyone else. Yves thinks that 2007 was their great vintage of the first decade of this millennium, and he'd probably be the only grower in the Côte de Nuits who would say that. Yves also makes the wines at Domaine de Courcelin Pommard, in the same way.
Yves, opinionated and laconical as ever, dismisses those who make pale wines by 'infusion' and says that failing to get the whole bunches properly ripe - and using all the bunch - is failing to get everything the terroir can offer. The wines he makes are dark, richly concentrated, and often hard to taste in their development, but experience shows that they age brilliantly
