This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

MNSC Burgundy Trip Day 4: Jean-Jacques Confuron

Visit to Domaine Jean-Jacques Confuron, where we were received by Sophie Meunier.  I had met Alain and Sophie Meunier at a dinner in Hong Kong two years ago, and it was nice to be able to taste a wider range of wines from them.

2009 Jean-Jacques Confuron Côtes de Nuits-Village Les Vignottes - minty, spicy with sweet fruit.

2009 Jean-Jacques Confuron Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Fleurières - very fresh and foresty, herbs, and alcoholic.

2009 Jean-Jacques Confuron Chambolle-Musigny - mint, spices, potpourri, a bit sharp but still enjoyable.

2009 Jean-Jacques Confuron Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru - spices, forest, caramel, concentrated fruit.

2009 Jean-Jacques Confuron Nuits-Saint-Georges Aux Boudots - nice and open nose, with spices, mint, sweet fruit, a bit of chocolate and pine needle.

2009 Jean-Jacques Confuron Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Chaboeufs - nose of forest and a bit of sweetness.

2009 Jean-Jacques Confuron Clos-Vougeot - intense nose of forest, pine needle, herbs, bacon fat and game meat.  Very nice.

2009 Jean-Jacques Confuron Romanée-Saint-Vivant - forest and herbs, a bit softer, sweeter with a bit of grilled meats.

2008 Jean-Jacques Confuron Clos-Vougeot - really nice.  Herbs, exotic spices, grape skin, minerals, pipi de chat, game meats and toffee.  Acidity slightly higher.
