Corton Clos des Cortons, Domaine Faiveley 2018
Moderate wood and menthol influences frame the intensely earthy and gamy aromas of both red and dark currant. There is excellent energy to the stony medium weight plus flavors that are at once succulent yet powerful where the latter carries over to the serious, firmly structured and mildly warm finish that goes on and on. This somewhat rustic effort is very Corton in basic character and a wine that's going to require patience.
|Score: 93/95||Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (77), January 2020|
Aromas of wild berries, dark chocolate, grilled squab, warm spices and forest floor introduce the 2018 Corton Grand Cru Clos des Cortons Faiveley, a medium to full-bodied, youthfully reserved wine that's deep, lively and concentrated, concluding with a long and beautifully defined finish. This is another terrific rendition of Faiveley's emblematic grand cru in the making.
