Domaine Confuron-Cotetidot 2011 Gevrey Chambertin "Lavaut St. Jacques" 1er Cru 750ml
The terroir really sings here and the voice of the winemaker (in the shape of 100% stems) can be heard too. Minerally, smoky, refreshing and cool, the wines from Lavaux/Lavaut are some of my favourites in 2011.
Score: 95 points -- Tim Atkin, Dec 2011
As one would reasonably expect given the position of the vineyard, this is exceptionally cool yet the nose of dark berries, floral and wet stone aromas is clearly quite ripe. There is outstanding intensity to the precise and beautifully well-detailed middle weight flavors that brim with a fine minerality before concluding in an impressively well-balanced, persistent and harmonious finish. Note however that here too patience will be required as this will need 12 to 15 years to realize its full development potential.
