2004 Domaine Confuron-Cotetidot, Chambolle-Musigny Red Burgundy.
This domaine really impresses me greatly and I think it is one of the sleepers year in and year out, especially their regular Bourgogne Rouge which is all from fruit sourced in the Vosne-Romanee area, so it was really fun to taste this Chambolle-Musigny from what is not a highly regarded vintage, and it shined with beauty and delicate details, very true to place and is drinking nice now. The 2004 Confuron Chambolle is bright and fresh still with a nose that hints at the vintage with dried roses, candied citrus and mineral spice while a tangy currant and red berry note rises leading to a soft and silky palate of cherry, spiced plum and apple skin with hints of orange tea, dried mushroom and more floral tones. This silky wine still has a few good years on it, but it’s silky elegance is very seductive now, wish I had a few bottles myself. Thanks to Beaune Imports for sharing this one at their recent San Francisco portfolio tasting, I am grateful for the experience and reminds me to keep my eye on Confuron.
