For six generations the Confuron family have worked the fine vineyards of Nuits-St-Georges, Gevrey and Vosne-Romanée. Despite Clive Coates MW urging us to "snap them up" in 2008, they remain under the radar. Enjoy this top-vintage, ripe-fruit 2019.
It means reserving the latest vintage before it is bottled. By paying an instalment 'up front', you reserve wine while it is still in the barrel, before the wines are shipped to the UK up to 18 months after being reserved, depending on the region.
The advantages of ‘En Primeur’ buying
Demand for fine wines is always high as there simply isn’t enough to go around. En Primeur guarantees you an allocation of the finest wines – providing you are quick!
How does payment work?
Now you need only pay the ‘cellar door’ price. Prior to delivery, we will invoice you for the second instalment (duty – around £2.23 a bottle at today’s prices) plus VAT on the total. Delivery (currently £7.99) is also applicable, unless you are a member of Unlimited. Alternatively, you can keep your case stored In Bond or Duty Paid in our state of the art temperature- and humidity-controlled customer storage facility (currently £12.60 per case per year).
After placing your order we will sent you a Reservation Certificate to your billing address. If the wines you have chosen are sold out we’ll contact you to advise which are still available.

For a fine, polished Nuits-St-Georges at a reasonable price, look out for this small domaine. The Confuron family have been tending their 11 hectares of tiny vineyards for six generations. This Nuits-St-Georges comes from parcels right on the border of Vosne-Romanée. No wonder then, the wine has a suppleness and harnessed power reminisicent of its neighbour. The grapes come from four vineyards that together make up a meagre 1.34 hectares. Many are ancient too, up to 80 years old, so the fruit is impressive. The wine just needs time to unfurl. Vines and terroir are king here, and François Confuron works hard in the vineyard, then gently treats the wine in his small cellar. 18 months in small, part new oak, lends polish to this rich wine.
"Very concentrated. Massive on the palate. Just so concentrated that wonders when it'll come round"
