06 confuron-cotetidot bourgogne pinot noir


2006 Confuron-Cotetidot, Bourgogne Pinot Noir
Medium cherry-red. Sweet, only slightly smokey stems, rather candied red/blue fruit. The palate is as sweet as the nose, with understated acidity. Occasional sips give a padded, slightly plush texture, but most show a mid-palate/tannins with a slightly astringent, sharp effect. Quite long finishing, but this far from a ‘together’ wine. Day two, less aromatically interesting, but more ‘together’ on the palate. I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt and say wait another year or two – it’s not really for today though…
Rebuy – Maybe

    Bill, I quite liked what I’ve had from this maker (mostly village wines and some ep samples), but they don’t get much appreciation, e.g. on the Squires board. They certainly have holdings in some fine vineyards. What do you think of them generally?

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
