About this WINE

Confuron-Cotetidot

Confuron-Cotetidot

Confuron-Cotetidot is a renowned Burgundian wine producer based in the Côte de Nuits region of Burgundy, France. The estate is known for producing high-quality wines from some of the most prestigious vineyard sites in the area.

The Confuron family has a long history in winemaking, dating back to the late 19th century. Over the years, they have acquired and inherited several vineyards, and today, the estate is led by the talented winemaker and viticulturist Jean-Jacques Confuron.

The estate focuses on producing red wines made primarily from Pinot Noir, the predominant grape variety in the Côte de Nuits. Pinot Noir from this region is highly regarded for its elegance, complexity, and ability to reflect the unique characteristics of the terroir.

Confuron-Cotetidot practices traditional winemaking methods with great emphasis on respecting the land and the grape’s natural expression. They often employ organic or biodynamic farming practices to enhance the vineyards’ health and the grapes’ overall quality.

Among their notable wines are Premier Cru and Grand Cru bottlings from esteemed vineyards such as Gevrey Chambertin, Clos de Vougeot, and Romanée-St-Vivant.

Vougeot

Vougeot

Most of the wine produced in this small village comes from a single, walled Grand Cru vineyard, the famous Clos de Vougeot. The vineyard in its present form dates from 1336 (when it was first planted by monks of Cîteaux), although it was not until the following century that it was entirely enclosed by stone walls. 

Clos de Vougeot is both the smallest commune and the largest Clos in the Cote d’Or. It consists of 50 hectares of vineyards shared among 82 owners, with six soil types. There is quite a difference in quality between the upper (best) and lower (least fine) parts of the vineyard, though in medieval times a blend from all sectors was considered optimum.

Le Domaine de la Vougeraie makes a very fine white wine from Le Clos Blanc de Vougeot, first picked out by the monks of Cîteaux as being suitable ground for white grapes in the year 1110.

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy's Côte d'Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climats of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
