Domaine Jean-Jacques Confuron, Côtes de Nuits-Villages La Montagne Blanc 2014
The domaine covers eight hectares and has been farmed organically since 1991. The domaine benefits from a high proportion of old vines, especially the village Chambolle and the Romanée St-Vivant, planted in 1929. The grapes are destalked, unlike at Domaine Confuron-Cotétidot, and given a shortish fermentation with punching down, to avoid the air contact of pumping over. Alain Meunier particularly
dislikes any post-fermentation maceration, as he feels the fruit loses freshness and terroir typicity when the skins are macerated in the presence of alcohol. Barrels are sourced from Rémond and Rousseau, with 50-75% new wood being used in general and 100% on the grands crus.
