DESCRIPTION

Burghound (Allen Meadows) 92-94 "Sweet Spot. Outstanding."

"An intensely earthy nose is comprised by notably ripe dark currant aromas that are cut with underbrush, spice and a whiff of wood toast and the

sauvage. There is an attractive freshness and plenty of vivacity to the velvet-textured full-bodied and overtly muscular flavors that possess terrific punch on the beautifully long, youthfully austere and notably firm finish. I like the overall sense of complexity and this too should age effortlessly." (Jan., 2019)

 

Decanter (Tim Atkin, MW) 96

"You're almost always assured of a great Corton from this 2.7ha monopole, which has performed especially well in the warmer conditions of 2017, retaining acidity and freshness. Fine tannins, chalky minerality and beautifully judged oak all support savoury raspberry, red cherry and pomegranate fruit flavours. Drinking Window: 2025-2032." (Nov., 2018)

 

Vinous Media (Neal Martin) 91-93

"The 2017 Corton Clos des Corton Faiveley Grand Cru comes from a monopole of around 3 hectares. It has quite a powerful bouquet of assertive red currant and cranberry fruit, fig jam and a hint of dates. The medium-bodied palate displays supple tannin and a fine bead of acidity. Quite stocky in style, with a saline, quite persistent finish that lingers in the mouth. Excellent." (January, 2019)

 

Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 92-94

"The 2017 Corton Grand Cru Clos des Cortons Faiveley wafts from the glass with a youthfully reserved but pretty bouquet of red berries, plums, spices and raw cocoa. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny, with juicy acids, sneaky depth at the core and a long, mineral finish. Reminiscent of a somewhat broader-shouldered version of the 2007 rendition, this will offer a broad drinking window." (January, 2019)

 

Winehog (Steen Öhman) 93-94

"The Corton Clos des Corton made from a large plot at the top of the Corton hill. The bouquet in brimming with red and dark fruits - detailed, refined and complex. On the palate intense, harmonious, deep and long - quite some concentration. The mid-palate is generous and juicy - showing the best side of the 2017 vintage. Drink from 2031." (12/27/18)
