Domaine Confuron-Cotetidot

Domaine Confuron-Cotetidot

The brothers Yves and Jean-Pierre Confuron still strictly adhere to the traditions established in the 17th century in the historic Domaine Confuron-Cotetidot - something that their ancestors would surely be proud of. The Confuron family has always selected and propagated vineyards to ensure the highest quality plant material - and even have a variety of Pinot named after them - "Pinot Confuron". The domain owns several Grands Cru vineyards, as well as two hectares of the notorious Vosne Romanée Premier Cru appeal 'Les Suchots' - a total of about 12 hectares of vineyards. Perhaps the most distinctive thing about them is that their vines have never seen chemicals - for 3 centuries they have been grown organically, although Confuron has not been officially certified. Another characteristic feature of this producer is that the harvest is done always later than most of their neighbors - Confuron claim that in this way they ensure fully ripeness of the bunches, which is important for them because they are fermented in whole clusters. The wine goes through a long ageing period up to 2 years using old and new oak barrels (up to 10-20% in table wines and up to 50% in Grand Cru) and is bottled unfiltered. Domaine Confuron Cotetidot wines are characterized by incredible aromatic intensity, spicy fruits and elegant minerality of their exclusive terroirs. They often have a deep color and are richly concentrated, which helps them to mature - they really age brilliantly!

Burgundy

Burgundy

In this area, red wines are produced from one variety - Pinot Noir, but the wines actually vary in quality from light and ordinary to rich, complex and truly majestic. Burgundy is famous for its small vineyards and it is generally believed that the smaller the area of ​​the vineyard, the better the wine. The best Burgundy wines come from Côte d'Or, a strip of only 30 miles, divided in the center into 2 separate parts; Côte de Nuit to the north and Côte de Beaune to the south. The fame of Cotê de Nuits is in the red wines - 95% of Pinot Noir grapes are produced here. Of course, here are some of the best, able to age, the most exotic and expensive wines. The Côte de Beaune produces approximately 38% white wine, 60% red wine and 2% sparkling wine. The white wine variety is exclusively Chardonnay, and the quality varies from the best, Montrachets and Corton Charlemagnes, Meursault, Puligny and Chassagne to the more ordinary Macon Blanc. The former are traditionally aged in small oak barrels, while Macon wines are usually lighter in character and have a good value for money. The red wines from Beaune do not have the fame of their "brothers" from Côte de Nuit, with exceptions here are those who come from Pomard, Corton and Volney. In general, they are lighter in style, but depending on the harvest they can show potential that successfully competes with the Côte de Nuits and beyond.

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is the dominant red wine grape of Burgundy, a challenge for every single vine grower and wine producer. It can be found in Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (Pino Nero), Chile, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and the USA. The wines show a specific aroma of red berries and cherry depending on the vinification method employed - from fresh red cherries in lighter wines to stewed black cherries in weightier examples, many of them also showing hints of earthy flavours.
