2015 Domaine Faiveley Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru

SKU #1340521 92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Notes of green apple, citrus zest, mineral reduction and soft floral nuances introduce powerful and punchy broad-shouldered flavors that possess a textured mouth feel before culminating in an almost painfully intense finish that goes on and on. This is really quite good and it's a wine that should be approachable after only a few years of bottle age yet reward up to a decade of cellaring. Inner quote mark (6/2017)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Pale, bright yellow. Pungent scents of crushed citrus peel, ginger and metallic minerality; higher-pitched and spicier than the Bâtard. At once ripe, smooth and sweet, offering a compelling combination of pliant texture, sweet stone fruit flavors and tactile stony minerality. The richness and fruit depth of the vintage come through loud and clear but this wine has perfect balancing minerality and ripe harmonious acidity for its sexy sweetness. Finishes very smooth and very long. Will this wine shut down in bottle or will it remain accessible? It certainly has the stuffing for at least mid-term aging. (ST) Inner quote mark (9/2017)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A good dose of smoky new oak offsets the vibrant structure and stony apple notes in this intense white. Remains tightly wound and long, with the flavors persisting on the finish. Well-balanced from start to finish. (BS) Inner quote mark (8/2017)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Rich and inviting, like perfumed oatmeal, however odd that may sound – perfumed and leesy/creamy. Massively rich and oaky on the palate. Generous and mouth-filling. The sample is quite warm, not helping with this big wine but it has great promise and still has freshness at the end of the long finish. Very good indeed. (JH) 18/20 points Inner quote mark (1/2017)
