"Here too there is noticeably toasty character to the earthy and brooding nose that displays notes of ripe purple fruit and a hint of the sauvage. The medium weight plus flavors possess excellent mid-palate concentration as well as fine power before terminating in an intense, youthfully austere and muscular finish. This is going to require at least 7 to 8 years of cellar time and should reward 12 to 15."

One of Burgundy’s most highly-regarded estates, the 20 acres of Domaine Jean-Jacques Confuron are now controlled by Sophie Meunier-Confuron and her husband Alain Meunier. They took over from Sophie’s father in 1988, and converted all parcels to organic viticulture in 1990. The wines are brilliant examples of the concept of 'power without weight', with great depth of flavors wrapped up in refinement and elegance.
There are not many cellars in Burgundy where the range of wines is so consistently superb from top to bottom. They are blessed with excellent parcels of 1er Cru and Village vines in Vosne-Romanée, Chambolle-Musigny and Nuits-St. Georges, not to mention two great Grand Crus – the Romanée-St. Vivant and Clos Vougeot. Alain’s style is one of supreme grace and elegance. The wines are seductive and captivating, but they never shout.
The vineyards come from Sophie’s side of the family, and were once part of the Charles Noellat domaine. With the sale of part of the domaine to Leroy and the splitting off of pieces, you can now see the Confuron, Leroy, and Hudelot-Noëllat parcels side by side in several of the appellations. Confuron farms organically, Leroy farms Biodynamically, and Hudelot-Noëllat treats their vines 'conventionally' – making it fascinating to see these parcels one next to the other.
