2008 Domaine Confuron-Cotetidot Nuits-St-Georges ‘Vignerondes’ 1er Cru

$180.00

The Confuron family have been vignerons since the seventeenth century during the reign of Louis XIV. Their specialty was, and continues to be, vine selection and propagation. They have led the way in identifying top selections massales and even have a clone of the noble Pinot Noir in their name: Pinot Confuron.

The family crafts uniquely village level wines from four villages in the Cotes de Nuits – Nuits-Saint-Georges, Vosne-Romanee, Chambolly-Musigny and Gevrey-Chambertin (not to mention Pommard as well) – and they have an impressive array of premier cru and grand cru sites, some of which include the famed Vosne Suchots (they are one of the largest holders), Echezeaux, Clos Vougeot, and tiny plots of Charmes Chambertin and Mazis Chambertin.

Description

92 Points Allen Meadows
A spicy, ripe, gamy and intensely earthy nose of red berry fruit and distinct floral notes gives way to extremely serious (in fact this is the epitome of the old school style) flavors that are delicious and long but fashioned in such a way that it will not be approachable for many years. A wine that is very Nuits in character.
