Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley 2017 (750ML)
92-94 Points, William Kelley, Wine Advocate: "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." 1/19
91-93 Points, Neal Martin, 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." 1/19
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. Better from 2023." 2/19
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." 1/19
93 Points, Charles Curtis, Decanter: "This was a superb showing in 2017 for this classic wine from Faiveley. Thin soils and east-facing exposure ripen fruit well, and the harvest in this year began on 29th August. The yield was good, and the wine is fresh and aromatic, with a perfumed nose of red fruits and violet. It is showing a bit of wood at present but should come together well with a bit of aging. This wine demonstrated that 2017 will be a vintage to drink on the fruit, yet will provide great pleasure."
