In my view, Romanée-Saint-Vivant is one of the most sensual and enchanting of the grands crus. The perfumed refinement of a great RSV is almost unmatched (aside from two monopoles just above the vineyard).
Domaine J-J Confuron is one of the less prominent producers within this fine vineyard, and given the improvement from some of the other growers, Confuron must feel a bit of pressure from names like Cathiard, Dujac and Hudelot-Noëllat.
That said, the vineyard holdings of J-J Confuron are interesting, as they have same origin as the fabeled and neigbouring plot of Domaine Leroy. So let’s take a closer look.
