The Jean-Jacques Confuron Côte de Nuits-Villages Les Vignottes comes from vines that are on average 40 years old. This Côte de Nuits Villages les Vignottes is raised on about 30% new oak and the rest on used oak in order to get a good balance and not to be too excessive in the wood because the beautiful fruit must have the upper hand. This 100% Pinot Noir has a ruby red color with aromas of cherries in the glass. If the wine is drunk young, decanting is recommended. In the nose we smell blackberries, dark plums and cherries with some earthy tones and herbs (rosemary). In the mouth, this Pinot is firm and sultry. The taste is well balanced with fine tannins, fresh acidity, vibrant black fruit and a juicy blackberry finish that gives a nice punch. Very good. If the wine is drunk young, decanting is recommended.

Vineyard for 2021 Domaine Jean-Jacques Confuron Côte de Nuits-Villages Les Vignottes

The winery owns almost 13 hectares of vineyard divided over 12 AOCs, all located in the Côte de Nuits. The vines are very old, some more than 90 years. In 1988, Sophie and Alain Meunier-Confuron took over this beautiful family estate. It is undoubtedly one of the best domains in Burgundy. It is Alain Meunier who makes it his life's goal to keep his Burgundy wines at a high level. He sees the vineyards and the grapes as a living thing, something that requires constant attention. Almost unbelievable but it is true that this man performs the work manually as much as possible. As a result, one does not see tractors among his vineyards, but winegrowers on horseback. This is a costly and intensive way of working, but he is convinced that it does have a beneficial effect in the glass. Alain Meunier is a very modest and timid man, but very sympathetic and devoted to his vineyards with all his heart. His wife Sophie, in contrast to her husband, is a lot of liveliness and spontaneity. She takes care of the commercial side and the administration.

In the cellars he combines old methods with the most modern techniques. Some age-old methods have proven their worth, modern techniques allow everything to be refined and better controlled, says the oenologist at Jean-Jacques Confuron. Confuron's wines undergo a traditional red wine-making process. The wines mature in oak casks; for the Grand Cru 80-100% new, for the other wines between 30-50% new. The wines are clarified with proteins, they are not filtered.
