Domaine Confuron-Gindre - Vosne-Romanée "La Colombiere" 2021
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 cuvee is a blend of 10 parcels in Vosne-Romanée with a total area of 2.37 ha. Each parcel brings its own typicality to the blend. There are vines aged from 30 to 70 years old, all located near the village such as Hautes Maizieres, Communes, Prés de la Folie.
Pretty and deep purple. The aromatics have been nicely extended by the whole bunch. This is pretty massive through the middle of the palate, the fruit darkens and then the whole bunch aspect shows drier fruit to finish, but I like the final fruit. 90-91 points, Jasper Morris, IB. 100% Pinot Noir.
