Confuron-Gindre are one of my newer discoveries – and what a discovery they are! I have not had a bad wine from them. Even their Bourgogne Rouge is delicious (when you have it at an en primeur tasting, that is). They make an excellent example of this, one of my favourite Vosne Premier Crus. It reminds me quite a lot of the sadly departed Philippe Engel’s (although reports are he was not sad when he departed). It is also like his wine in that it is not outrageously priced. Why drink a 2012 now? Well, as a song I was just listening to said, “Enjoy yourself, you don’t know when you go quench “. So I will.
We drank this with rump steaks from Broughton Water Buffalo. My, they were good. Very tender. Lots of flavour. We normally just east their water buffalo burgers but one needs to eat steak on a fairly regular basis; as it is manifestly clear to even the biggest dunderhead high quality steak is good for you!
