2017 Domaine Faiveley Corton-Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru

SKU #1444037 96 points Decanter

 You're almost always assured of a great Corton from this 2.7 ha 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. (TA)  (10/2018)

96 points James Suckling

 The super fresh, sour-cherry nose leads you into a very concentrated and focused red with a lot of mineral and graphite character. The tannins are a shade firmer than in the other Grand Crus from Faiveley, but it was always that way. Deep, dark and cool finish that goes on and on.  (2/2019)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 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.  (1/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2017 Corton Grand Cru Clos des Cortons Faiveley is showing very well, mingling aromas of blackberries, red berries and cassis with notions of cinnamon, clove and blood orange. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with a fleshy core of fruit, ripe but lively acids and powdery framing tannins, concluding with a sapid, youthfully oak-inflected finish. This is a deep and comparatively structured effort in the context of this approachable vintage, and it will merit a bit of bottle age. (WK) 93+  (11/2019)

91-93 points Vinous

 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. (NM)  (1/2019)

K&L Notes

93-95 points, Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Monopole. A beautiful, opulent purple colour starts us off well. The bouquet is sublime too, a very youthful fruit, more purple than black and certainly not red, while retaining a freshness and certainly a crisp mineral feel. It has a fine driven intensity and plenty of energy, still in a very fresh more than luxurious style." (1/2019)
