2014 Burgundies: Report from the Vineyards -- Day 9

Thursday started early in Premeaux-Prissey at Domaine Jean-Jacques Confuron. The wines are all successful and in a forward, easy-drinking style with very dark fruit. Alain Meunier will begin the bottling in the middle of November. Particularly notable were the premiers crusVosne-Romanée Les Beauxmonts, Nuits-Saint-Georges Aux Boudots, and Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru, all of which were excellent representations of their respective terroirs. The Romanée-Saint-Vivant is excellent, too, but is less forward than the other wines. (Continue reading here.)
