1993 Domaine Jean Jacques Confuron Nuits St Georges Les Chaboeufs
Quantity to Purchase:

Size=750 ml, RP[90]

"The structured Nuits St.-Georges Chaboeufs requires 4-5 years of cellaring. A powerful, rich, concentrated, muscular wine with gobs of black fruits, licorice, herbs, and oak, this smoky, spicy, medium-bodied Pinot should prove to be uncommonly long-lived - say 12-15 years. A potential superstar may be emerging. It is no secret why this estate's wines have become superb as opposed to merely good. The domaine now practices extensive crop thinning, with average yields of under 30 hectoliters per hectare, even in abundant vintages such as 1992. These are powerful, rich wines that are bottled early to protect their intense, concentrated fruit. Confuron enjoyed stunning success in such tough years as 1991 and 1992, as well as in 1993. The old days of musty, vegetal, over-cropped wines are surely a thing of the past. The daughter of the late Jean-Jacques Confuron, Sophie Meunier, and her husband, Alain, deserve many a kudo for this domaine's remarkable renaissance." - Robert Parker, robertparker.com (Aug 30, 1995)
