Vosne-Romanée, Domaine François Confuron-Gindre

France, Burgundy

From arguably Burgundy’s most sort after address, Domaine François maybe the least well known of the extended Confuron family, but he is right up there with them all! Brilliant Villages example – exemplary, deceptively long and elegant classical Vosne-Romanée. Wonderfully crafted and full of brooding quality, texture and flavour. Great ageing potential!”

Origin

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.

Grape Variety

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.

Alcohol Percentage

13%

Cellar Potential

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.

Producer

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.

Food Match

Best served with classical dishes – such as pink rack of lamb, or duck with a seasonal vegetable accompaniment.

In the press

"There can be little doubt that, in the firmament of the Côte de Nuits, Vosne-Romanée is the brightest star ...... Vosne-Romanée is the apotheosis of Burgundy" Charles Taylor MW "The Great Domaines of Burgundy"
