Description

The domaine is the largest holder in Suchots with an incredible 2.16 ha. Moderate wood sets off an intensely floral and highly-spiced nose that exhibits aromas of dark cherry, cassis, plum and sandalwood. The blatantly powerful, concentrated and once again very serious large-scaled flavors possess volume on the gorgeously long, balanced and focused finish that is both austere and very clearly built-to-age. In a word, excellent. 2031+ 92-94 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound

Full ruby-red. Knockout nose combines tangy black raspberry, black cherry and licorice aromas lifted by high notes of flowers and blood orange. A dense, sappy, compellingly smooth wine with grand cru texture and class. Incredibly silky, broad flavors of dark fruits, violet, coffee and cocoa powder convey a weightless quality. Confuron's large parcel of vines (2.13 hectares) lies very close to Domaine Leroy's Romanée-Saint-Vivant. Finishes with utterly refined, late-arriving tannins and extraordinary building length that leaves the taste buds vibrating. Confuron compared this wine to the legendary '47 and '49 vintages. 94-97 points, Stephen Tanzer
