The Confuron family have been vignerons since the reign of Louis XIV, back in the seventeenth century, when their speciality was vine selection and propagation – they even have a strain of Pinot Noir named after them, the ‘Pinot Confuron’.Jack Confuron’s marriage to Bernadette Cotetidot in 1964 gave the estate its present name. Jack has continued in charge of the estate ever since, but his son, Yves, has gradually taking over responsibility, assisted by his oenologist brother, Jean-Pierre. The domaine has an impressive portfolio of vineyards with several Grands Crus and the revered Premier Cru of Les Suchots.

About the wine

Tasting notes

100% whole bunch grapes from a tiny selection of vines in the northeastern reaches of Vosne-Romanée, and aged for 16 months in mostly neutral French oak, this is liquid muscle: full of intense minerality, old-school structure, and sophistication. Incredible Value!

Expert review

A relatively deeply pitched nose offers up ripe notes of plum, earth and a hint of the sauvage. There is unusually good concentration to the firm and sappy medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a serious, firm and impressively long finish. Wines at this level rarely get much better and if you want an age-worthy house red this would make for a fine choice.
