Domaine Confuron-Gindre - Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2017
This Bourgogne is a pure gem with crunchy mixed berries and earthy tannin.
Domaine Confuron-Gindre has been established six generations ago in Vosne-Romanée and is located Rue de La Tâche. A great sign! Though they don't own the monopoly of la Tâche (Romanée-Conti does), François Confuron-Gindre owns a myriad of ideally located vineyards in Vosne-Romanée and hints in Nuits-St-Georges and Gevrey-Chambertin. The Domaine accounts for 11 hectares, with five village wines, four premier crus in Vosne-Romanée and one grand cru Échezeaux. A blessing, considering Vosne-Romanée is the Holy Grail for Pinot Noir lovers. The Domaine has been under the radar for quite some time, but since Edouard, Francois's son is gradually taking over, the word is out
The Bourgogne Pinot Noir cuvée is a blend of a few plots, all with their own characteristics and located throughout Vosne-Romanée. This beautiful wine is an intense, structured Pinot Noir. The bouquet is an explosion of cherries and raspberries with earthy aromas of figs and mushrooms, leading into a dense tannin structure. Enjoy with duck confit, sweet and sour pork, mushroom pasta and cheese platters. Drinks now with a 30 min decant. 100% Pinot Noir.
