2014 Grand Cru Domaine J. Confuron Cotetidot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Great pure ripeness on the nose. Rich density combines with a grippy feel. Sweet fruit liqueur, crème de fruits, forest floor. All in a tight weave - there's real power here. Drinking range: 2023 - 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.
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 a .45 ha parcel in Les Treux where Clos de Vougeot meets Grands Echézeaux). Somewhat surprisingly this is even more floral with its cool and ultra-fresh nose of various dark berries, sandalwood and a lovely array of spices. I very much like the seductive texture of the big-bodied flavors that aren’t quite as dense or structured as those of the Suchots but they’re notably finer, all wrapped in a dusty, palate coating and gorgeously long finish. Excellent. Drinking range: - 2026 Rating: 92-95 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2016)
This is an old vine parcel in the lieu-dit of Les Treux with an average age of 55 years. It’s quite firm and austere at the moment, with the whole bunches contributing a smoky, slightly drying note, but what lies beneath is sappy and refreshing, with subtle berry fruit. It just needs time to come together in bottle. Drinking range: 2022 - 2030 Rating: 95 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com (Jan 2016)
