Bourgogne Blanc


WINE 65



CLASSIC BOURGOGNE BLANC


Young plot planted in 2012, the generous Chardonnay grape variety offers us complexity and a beautiful richness in the mouth.

Aging takes place for 10 months in barrels, while malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine then gains in fat and receives a "toasted" aspect of the wood which enhances it even more.


KLASSISK BOURGOGNE BLANC


Ung mark plantet i 2012, den generøse Chardonnay druesort giver vinen kompleksitet og en smuk fylde i munden.

Lagring finder sted i 10 måneder på fad, mens malolaktisk gæring finder sted. Vinen øges derefter i fedme og udvikler et "ristet" aspekt af træet, som forstærker den endnu mere.

ABOUT THE WINERY


Francois Confuron-Gindre


Domaine Confuron-Gindre was established six generations ago in Vosne-Romanée and is located on Rue de La Tâche. A great sign!

Though they don't own the Monopole of La Tâche (Romanée-Conti does), François Confuron-Gindre owns a myriad of ideally located vineyards in Vosne-Romanée alongside a smattering in Nuits-St-Georges and Gevrey-Chambertin. The Domaine accounts for 11 hectares, including five Village wines across the aforementioned appellations; four Premier Crus in Vosne-Romanée; and one Grand Cru from Échezeaux. A blessing, considering Vosne-Romanée is the holy grail for Pinot Noir lovers. The Domaine has been under the radar for quite some time, but since Edouard, Francois's son, is gradually taking over, the word is out!


Domaine Confuron-Gindre blev etableret for seks generationer siden i Vosne-Romanée og ligger på Rue de La Tâche. Et godt tegn!

Selvom de ikke ejer Monopolen i La Tâche (Romanée-Conti gør), ejer François Confuron-Gindre et utal af ideelt beliggende vinmarker i Vosne-Romanée sammen med en smattering i Nuits-St-Georges og Gevrey-Chambertin. Domaine tegner sig for 11 hektar, herunder fem landsbyvine på tværs af de førnævnte betegnelser; fire Premier Crus i Vosne-Romanée; og en Grand Cru fra Échezeaux. En velsignelse i betragtning af Vosne-Romanée er den hellige gral for Pinot Noir-elskere.

Domaine har været under radaren i et godt stykke tid, men siden Edouard, Francois søn, gradvist overtager, er ordet ude!


General grape descriptions



Chardonnay


Wine drinkers find it flatteringly easy to enjoy, with its broad, exuberant charms, relatively high alcohol and low acidity, and lack of powerful scent. Vine growers find it easy to grow productively and profitably (it can yield well, ripen usefully early, although buds rather too early for frost-free comfort in cool climates). And winemakers revel in the range of different winemaking techniques to which Chardonnay readily submits: not just a wide range of dry white wines with more weight than most, but delicate sparkling wines and even a few extremely successful sweet white wines made with the benefit of 'noble rot'.
