The Confurons, Yves, Jean-Pierre and patriarch Jacky are the current generations of a very old family in Burgundy, with mention of this family in the court of Louis XIV. The Domaine is run by Yves and Jean Pierre, although its soul is Yves, who shares his time with Domaine de Courcel, in Pommard. The family is very close-knit and Jacky's father always lends a hand when he can. There are several predicates that make this producer special. Firstly, unlike most producers in Burgundy, Yves harvests much later, waiting for the Pinot Noir to be very ripe, and when he receives it, he harvests it with 100% stems, looking for freshness and finesse. Secondly, a purist line of thought, without interventions that harm the vineyard or the grapes, associated with an almost obsessive rigor. The result is great wines, which may initially seem "too" greedy, but after half a dozen years they become masterful. As a curiosity, and as no other family has this honor, there is a variety of Pinot Noir in Burgundy, called Pinot Confuron.

Because of where the Yves vineyards are here, this again has a classic 'Vosne side' style and feel. Violets on the nose, some pretty floral dried red petals and interesting cheerful fruit too. More seriously, more intense fruit power in the middle. Firm core, some leather and stones. Hard earthy minerality adds a sense of restraint, but this is broad and richly satisfying. Powerful flavor, elegant and smooth lines, a great sense of 'Rondes', impressive stuff.
