Viticulturist In Burgundy

Mike Wing getting cultured.

We have word from Mike, who writes:

Nuits-Saint-GeorgesI am at Domaine Jean-Jacques Confuron which is in Nuits-Saint-Georges, 10 minutes out of Beaune. Domaine J-J Confuron is a fairly small vineyard with only 8 hectares, 2 grand cru blocks one in Clos-Vougoet and the other in Romanée-Saint-Vivant, plus four premier crus in Nuits-Saint-Georges, Chambolle-Musigny and Vosne-Romanée (which look great this year). They also have village and bourgogne blocks. It's all very spread out and great for observing different management styles. J-J Confuron have been organic for 21 years, they have a very simple approach.

The harvest is going well. There is a lot of botrytis in some blocks as a result of late season rain. I have only picked one morning and have been in the winery since. All the harvest workers stay above the winery in communal rooms which are not brilliant for non-snorers. Everybody eats drinks and sleeps together and there is amazing food which mama Confuron cooks up all day. Beer and wine is on tap. You can't help but enjoy that. I have taken lots of photos and will send some next week when things calm down a bit in the winery.

Mmm ... wine on tap, eh?
