The Winery

The domaine makes a wide range of wines spanning from the village-level AOC through to grand cru. Village-level wines are made from five communes: Nuits-Saint-Georges, Vosne-Roman?e, Chambolle-Musigny and Gevrey-Chambertin in the C?tes de Nuits, and Pommard in the C?tes de Beaune. Confuron-Cotetidot also produce an array of wines from premier and grand cru sites, including Les Suchots in Vosne-Romane?, ?chezeaux, and tiny plots of Charmes- and Mazis-Chambertin. The domaine's holdings are consistently located in the better locations within the given appellations. The Confuron family has a long history at the forefront of Burgundian viticulture, and has a clone of Pinot Noir named after it. The vineyards have never been treated with synthetic herbicides or pesticides, and yields are tightly controlled through pruning and green harvesting. Barrel-aging can take place for up to two years, and the village wines tend to see 10 to 20 percent new oak, the premier crus a little more, and a maximum of 50 percent for grands crus. Wines are bottled unfined and filtered.
