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.
(from En Brescul, which sits high on the slope next to Petits Noizons and has very white soil). A pure and really very pretty nose of ultra-cool red and dark berry fruit leads to equally cool and restrained middle weight flavors that exude a fine minerality. I like the freshness and verve though it seems clear that the underlying structure is not quite as mature as any of the previous villages level wines and as such the finish is just a bit dry, at least at present. 2018+ Rating: 86-89 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2014)
Good medium red. Aromas or iron and red licorice. Nicely fresh in the mouth, with good cut and acidity giving the blackberry, redcurrant and licorice flavors a juicy quality. Firm, building tannins provide good spine Rating: 87-89 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Jan 2014)
