Very deep colour, a glossy thick look. Nose is pure black cassis fruit.Very ripe and fat and silky. L&S (Dec 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.

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 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.
