Domaine Confuron-Gindre - Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2018

$55.00

This Bourgogne, a pure-fruited gem, features crunchy mixed berries and earthy tannin structure.

Domaine Confuron-Gindre was established six generations ago in Vosne-Romanée and is located on Rue de La Tâche. A great sign! Though they don't own the monopole of La Tâche (Domaine Romanée-Conti does), François Confuron-Gindre owns a myriad of ideally located vineyards in Vosne-Romanée and a smattering in Nuits-St-Georges and Gevrey-Chambertin. The Domaine accounts for 11 hectares, with five village wines, across the aforementioned villages; four Premier Crus in Vosne-Romanée; and the one Grand Cru from 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 now out.

This pure-fruited gem is an intense, structured Pinot Noir. The Bouquet provides an explosion of cherries and raspberries with earthy aromas of figs and mushrooms, leading to a dense tannin structure. Enjoy with duck confit, sweet and sour pork, mushroom pasta and cheese platters. Drink now with a 30 minute decant. 100% Pinot Noir.

The Bourgogne Pinot Noir cuvée comes from a blend of several plots, all with their own characteristics, located in different parcels within Vosne-Romanée. The total area comprises 2.46 ha, featuring vines of up to 80 years old (the youngest from 1992). This wine is aged for 18 months before release, one year in French oak barrels and six months in bottle.
