J.J. Confuron – 7/12/2012

2011 Cote des Nuits Les La Montagne
Dark sweet rum notes, toasty and black, a little brambly and minty. Robust full with some late sweetness, exuberant and dense but still fresh. On the extractive oaky modern style. Quite tight, needs some time.

2011 Nuits Saint Georges Les Fleurie
More floral but still dark fruits, spice and mint. Deeper richer tannins, fuller structure and round tannins, tight focused and fresh, balanced and bold with a lot of length.

2011 Chambolle-Musigny
Deep dark and rich, sweet black fruits. Deep full very earthy and soft, sweet round tannins, a little grainy and extractive, not aggressive but certainly powerful for the time being. Modern burgundy?

2011 Les Chaboeuf Nuits-Saint-George Premier Cru
Focused tight fresh and fine, round and extractive, dark notes, precise and dense.

2011 Cotes des Nuits Vignottes
Dark soft pure yet fresh, not too dense or heavy, good structure and tannin weight, forward and fruit expressive for the moment, minerality will come through later.

2011 Clos Vougeot
Quiet subtle and complex, less power and exuberance in fruit, also not as dark. Depth power and generosity with focus drive and freshness. Long on the palate, elegance but not silky velvety or opulent in style, will take more time.

2011 Romanee St Vivant Grand Cru
Pretty serious, very intense, powerful but assuredness and restraint, elegant and fine, wonderfully balanced nose. Supple rich and soft yet firm and confident, generous spicy fresh yet round and mouth-filling. Gorgeous expression, very feminine.
