Labelled as simple village Bourgogne, but this top vintage 2019 uses grapes taken from three sites within this domaine’s superb Vosne-Romanée vineyards. No wonder this fine red has such lovely depth of bright, silky berry fruit and spicy complexity.
Domaine Confuron Gindre is a sixth-generation family estate boasting 11 hectares scattered across Gevrey-Chambertin, Nuits-Saint-Georges and Vosne-Romanée. We say ‘boast’, but they are a modest family, devoted to making fine wines, true to their terroir. Respect for the vineyard is what inspires François Confuron in his winemaking, with only natural additions made to the vineyards, and timing dictated largely by the lunar calendar. This fine red uses Pinot Noir taken from three small plots in Vosne-Romanée, with vines up to 80-years-old. This will account for the gorgeous depth of flavour captured in this wine, guided by a gentle hand in the winemaking. A short passage in barrel adds to the rich nuances of flavour. Open early or cellar.
"a thrilling year for Pinot Noir; wines bursting with head-turning perfume and fresh, succulent fruit"
