Yves Confuron is a superstar of the Côte d'Or, boasting one of the most consistent ranges of wines, from village wines like this to grand cru. (When he's not looking after he 11ha family domaine, you will find him making wines at Domaine de Courcel in Pommard.) This is shy and restrained in style with spicy notes and dark red fruit aromas. Tight structure and firm tannins with floral and supple fruit characters. (30 Burgundy 2013s under £25 IB) Drinking range: 2018 - 2024 Rating: 92-92 Decanter Magazine(Mar 2015)
This is aromatically tight to the point of being almost completely inexpressive though it does seem ripe. There is fine density to the very serious and mouth coating middle weight flavors that possess that beguiling quality of inner mouth perfume before terminating in a lingering, firm and focused finale. 2021+ Rating: 88-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jan 2015)
Rating: 91 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com(Jan 2015)
Healthy medium red. Ripe aromas of red berries and flowers. Tangy red fruit flavors show noteworthy mineral tension and cut. Finishes with a firm tannic spine to support a slow evolution in bottle. Drinking range: 2019 - 2027 Rating: 87-90 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com(Jan 2015)
Appealingly fresh red fruit on the nose and attack; sweet tannins. Supple texture. Toothsome nugget of sweetness in the middle. Proper Vosne-Romanee substance with elegance. Spot on. From 2018 Rating: 16.5 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Nov 2014)
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
