2014 Grand Cru Domaine J. Confuron Cotetidot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Spicy, mildly medicinal, herbal (dried herbs de Provence), menthol. Very tight and linear. Not very Charmes! Again a rich tannic mass, all wrapped up with full fruit - great concentration. A long way to go. Drinking range: 2024 - L&S (Nov 2015)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Bright dark crimson. Lively fruit. Lovely sweet palate entry and great seduction with Gevrey concentration. Needs time though. Lots of tannin on the end so pretty heavily extracted. Drinking range: 2024 - 2032 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2016)
(from a .30 ha parcel in Charmes proper). Reduction presently dominates the nose. Otherwise there is outstanding richness to the full-bodied flavors that possess a relatively refined texture that is not dissimilar to that of the Ech, all wrapped in a fleshy yet moderately austere finale. Drinking range: - 2026 Rating: 92-94 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2016)
From a 0.35-hectare parcel in what Burgundians tend to call Charmes-Charmes (to distinguish is from Mazoyères) this is sappy and intense, with lots of clove spice, firmish tannins and the concentration to age. A Grand Cru that’s built to last, but can be forbidding in its youth. Drinking range: 2021 - 2030 Rating: 96 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.
