About this winery

The Confuron-Cotétidot name began in 1964 with the union of legendary winemaker Jean-Jacques "Jacky" Confuron to Bernadette Cotétidot. Jacky has since relinquished day-to-day operation of the Domaine to his two very capable oenologist sons, Yves and Jean-Pierre. With old vines spread over four villages in the Côte de Nuits, this is a very impressive array of Village, Premier and Grand Cru sites.

Excellent quality in a robust style. (Barrel Sample)

Stephen Tanzer, January 2018

Bright, dark red-ruby. Explosive aromas of black cherry and black raspberry complicated by game, spices, soil and licorice. Compellingly deep, lively village wine with the class of a premier cru: wonderfully refined and primary, conveying an almost Syrah-like ripeness to its black cherry and licorice flavors. This wine has a relatively high 3.75 pH but conveys an impression of harmonious acidity and balance. Tannins spread out horizontally to saturate the very long finish, which displays excellent medicinal reserve. Made almost entirely from Confuron's vines in Champs-Chenys, just below Charmes-Chambertin.
