2018 Francois Confuron-Gindre Vosne-Romanée La Colombiere
Out of stock
Domaine Confuron-Gindre was established six generations ago in Vosne-Romanée and is located on Rue de La Tâche. A great sign!
Though they don’t own the Monopole of La Tâche (Romanée-Conti does), François Confuron-Gindre owns a myriad of ideally located vineyards in Vosne-Romanée alongside a smattering in Nuits-St-Georges and Gevrey-Chambertin. The Domaine accounts for 11 hectares, including five Village wines across the aforementioned appellations; four Premier Crus in Vosne-Romanée; and one Grand Cru from Échezeaux. A blessing, considering Vosne-Romanée is the holy grail for Pinot Noir lovers.
The Domaine has been under the radar for quite some time, but since Edouard, Francois’s son, is gradually taking over, the word is out!
Historically, Francois banned herbicides early on and started to plough the soils to boost biodiversity, encouraging the roots to dig deeper. Across the Domaine, the average age of the vines is old, providing nicely concentrated grapes. The winemaking is gentle, with smart use of oak to champion the elegance and silkiness of Pinot Noir without upsetting the balance. These are wines we love!
Watch out for this Domaine since the quality is apparent, and from 2017 onwards, improvements are being implemented to boost the complexity further.
For now, it remains a connoisseur’s secret!
