  • About this winery

    The Confuron-Cotétidot name began in 1964 with the union of legendary winemaker Jean-Jacques "Jacky" Confuron to Bernadette Cotétidot. Jacky has since relinquished day-to-day operation of the Domaine to his two very capable oenologist sons, Yves and Jean-Pierre. With old vines spread over four villages in the Côte de Nuits, this is a very impressive array of Village, Premier and Grand Cru sites. The Confuron sons, in addition to handling the vines and wines of this property, hold other...

    Located on the northerly, Vosne side of Nuits-St-Georges, this comes from an old vine parcel of 0.75 hectares, planted in 1923. It’s a more approachable Confuron style, although everything is relative at a domaine that makes wines to age, with rich, plush, textured fruit, an overlay of green malt and peat and a sappy finish.

    Bright red-ruby. Restrained aromas of currant, raspberry, smoke and spices. Pure but very tight and discreet, and yet this wine is clearly more pliant and ripe than the Lavaut Saint-Jacques (it finished its malo last April and was much closer to being a finished wine in January). More density here to support the rather suave tannins. In spite of its deeper-pitched saline soil tones, this wine conveys an impression of weightlessness and finishes with very good spicy lift. Confuron owns a full hectare of vines here but produced just five barrels of wine, the equivalent of less than 12 hectoliters per hectare.

    Here the wood is somewhat more obvious with its layered and ripe nose that displays notes of plum, cassis, earth and plenty of spice elements. The mouthfeel of the concentrated and vibrant flavors is a mix of power and refinement as the mid-palate is relatively supple yet the finish immediately tightens up on the balanced and long but very serious backend.
