Domaine Confuron-Gindre - Vosne-Romanée "Haute Maizieres" 2017

$155.00

This Vosne-Romanée “Haute Maizieres” is wonderfully floral, infused with sleek, intense red currants, cranberries and hints of crushed stone and forest floor.

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 monopoly 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 has always been a Vosne lieu-dit of quality. The vines here sit just below “Les Suchots” and Grand Cru “Echezeaux”, and right beside Grand Cru Clos de Vougeot, with the average age of vines sitting at 60 years. The wine spends 18 months in oak (30% new).

The bouquet is wonderfully floral, infused with sleek, intense red currants, cranberries and hints of crushed stone and forest floor. The palate is beautifully focused, showing strawberry and black cherries with a perfect line of acidity, accenting the spice-and-vanilla-charred tannin structure. It can be enjoyed with venison, veal, duck, quail, kangaroo, smoked meats and charred eggplant. Drink now with a one-hour decant or age till 2027+. 100% Pinot Noir.
