Here too there is a subtle touch of wood present on the beautifully well-layered aromas of lavender, rose petal, dark currant and black cherry aromas. There is a lovely minerality present on the lively medium weight flavors where the mouth feel definitely benefits from the fine-grained tannins, all wrapped in a firm and serious but refined finish where a hint of bitter cherry appears. This is excellent and worth a look. Drinking range: - 2024 Rating: 90-93 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2016)
A monopoly holding at the domaine, this is more marked by its whole bunch fermentation than the other Premiers Crus, possibly because it’s a more delicate wine. Chalky, sappy and smoky with firm tannins, subtle oak and bright acidity. Drinking range: 2019 - 2027 Rating: 94 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com (Jan 2016)
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.
