2012 Domaine J. Confuron Cotetidot

Slightly hairier texture, taut and textured, but still run through with generous fruit and ripeness - energy, chew and lovely length too. L&S (Dec 2013)

Juicy black fruit, fine tannins, lovely liquorice and sweet vanilla complexity. Dry, grippy tannins. Really quite hard, in fact. Certainly not as complete and inviting as their Vosne-Romanée. 2018-2032 Rating: 17 Richard Hemming - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2014)
(from 80+ year old vines in Bas de Combes). A deeply pitched nose features notes of dark berries, cassis, soft spice and plenty of earth character. The mouth feel is tighter and not quite as lush as that of the Vosne but the middle weight flavors don’t possess the same mid-palate concentration though it’s close. I like the sauvage element on the mouth coating finish as it is very Nuits. 2020+ Rating: 88-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2014)
Good dark red-ruby. Spicy black fruits and bitter chocolate on the nose and palate. Sweet, plush and opulent, showing a slightly wild aspect to the chewy flavors of dark fruits, chocolate, spices and leather. Rather soft in acidity but rich tannins give the wine shape and extend the finish. Mostly from the Bas de Combes next to Vosne-Romanee Les Chaumes.

Bas du combe – a small slope with vines facing south. Clay on stones…30cm top soil… Again sweet hedgerow fruit, smooth soft tannins. Richer tannins…long and sweet finish. Quite seductive and vosne like. Very good. From 2016. Rating: 16.25 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.
