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.
