2016 Domaine Faiveley Corton-Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1352286 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Corton Grand Cru Clos des Cortons Faiveley is another cuvée that is showing superbly from bottle, revealing an attractive bouquet of ripe red berry fruit, orange rind, wood smoke, espresso roast and dark chocolate that's framed by a deft touch of classy new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, satiny and lavish, with a deep and layered core, excellent concentration, vibrant acids and a long, beautifully defined finish. This is one of the finest rendition of the Clos des Cortons Faiveley produced under the new regime. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Touches of wood and menthol can be found on the brooding and inexpressive nose of plum, dark cherry liqueur, freshly turned earth and a gamy note. There is an appealing sense of underlying tension to the concentrated big-bodied flavors that also coat the palate with dry extract while exhibiting excellent length on the balanced and very firmly structured finale. Patience strongly advised. *Sweet Spot* Inner quote mark (1/2018)

K&L Notes

92-95 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Glowing rich purple colour, a brilliant nose too with incredibly dense fruit, lively dark red notes. An immense mouthful, some black notes dabbling with the rich red fruit, exceptional poise and length. Very long and fine." (01/2018) 96 points Tim Atkin, MW: "Untouched by the frost in 2016, this comes from an east-facing, 2.77-hectare parcel above Ladoix is part of Corton Rognet. It’s a little closed at the moment, as it’s entitled to be, with firm tannins and plenty of grip. But the underlying wine is focused and refreshing with notes of dark fruit and liquorice."
