2019 Echezeaux Grand Cru Domaine Confuron-Gindre – En Primeur is now available to purchase. Please click here to email us your wish-list at [email protected].
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. The ripeness of 2019 means that these wines will be accessible ‘on the fruit’ relatively young, but the structure and dark, elegant fruits will reward patience. 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.
“Brooding and deep, quite closed on the nose initially, unfurling slowly. Black cherries and pepper, serious power and depth with a lengthy finish. Impressive. 50% new oak barrels.”
