A debutant in our offer this year, Confuron-Gindre are based in Vosne Romanée and are run by Claudine and François Confuron, with increasing input from their son Edouard. They have a growing reputation and produce serious wines that are often dense and have excellent ageing potential, partly due to the cool cellars resulting in a longer malolactic fermentation and wines that knit together tightly. In ripe vintages such as 2018 they have a beautiful purity of fruit that will mean that ageing in cellars for lengthy periods will not necessarily be required! Edouard’s influence has seen some whole-bunch fermentation in the winemaking and new oak is used in varying degrees across the range but is always wonderfully integrated and harmonious.
“Made up from parcels across Vosne-Romanée with old vines up to 80 years old (the youngest vines used here are 27 years old). Vibrant red berries and cherries with finesse and structure from the old vines and time in barrel.”
