2014 Jean Jacques Confuron Bourgogne Cuvee Jeunesse
The roots of this domaine go back to the year 1926 when Jean Confuron of Vosne married Anne Marie Bouchard of Prémeaux. Vines came from both sides of the family and the newly married couple chose to live in Prémeaux. Today the domaine is in the hands of their granddaughter Sophie who married Alain Meunier.
When Jean-Jacques Confuron fell ill in 1982, wife Andrée and daughter Sophie took charge of a sleeping giant among Burgundy domaines. The vines were superbly located in many of the Côte de Nuits' best sites, but the cellars were outdated and the majority of stock was customarily sold to local négociants.
Everything changed when Sophie Confuron enrolled at the Lycée Viticole in Beaune: she not only discovered a natural talent for winemaking, but also met Alain Meunier, now her husband. The young couple returned to the domaine in 1988, and instigated a veritable quality revolution.
Aromas of strawberries, cherries, and a spicy note. A fruity supple and silky wine with a hint of oak and some red licorice and loaded with red fruit.
