Vosne-Romanée is home to the highest concentration and some of the most highly acclaimed Grand Cru vineyard sites (6 in all) in the Côte de Nuits. These wines are potentially the most classical and refined of all red Burgundy. Even at Village level they are often superior to other Villages Premier Crus.
100% Pinot Noir.
Yields are low and wines are made with judicious use of new oak and nearly always bottled unfined and unfiltered. A mixture of a number of sites in the village, this Vosne-Romanée has been aged for 12 months in 30% new barriques.
Please note this wine is a little closed right now, so would recommend you decant and aerate it at least 2-3 hours before drinking. Just coming into its drinking window this will age and improve comfortably for another 10 years.
The Domaine (François) Confuron Gindre is located at Rue de la Tâche in the heart of the clay-limestone terroirs of the world famous village of Vosne-Romanée. They own approximately 11 ha of vines, mainly red, which are spread over 50 small parcels! A number of these sites have vines over 75 years of age. Working to traditional practices (organic) in the vineyard and cellar, these wines have beautiful texture and balance and are truly classical in style.
Best served with classical dishes – such as pink rack of lamb, or duck with a seasonal vegetable accompaniment.
