Reviews for 2004 Faiveley Corton Clos des Cortons Grand Cru

Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, March 2008
Although this is dominated at this young stage by wood you can get through the firm spicy character to the dark heady fruit flavors. It has concealed power and intensity of ripe elegant fruit. It needs at least 10 years... Although this is dominated at this young stage by wood you can get through the firm spicy character to the dark heady fruit flavors.

Pure and focused with a firm spine of tannins. Cherry and mineral flavors are locked in. This will take some time to integrate and show its true potential. Fine length. Best from 2009 through 2018. 100 cases imported.

90+ Deep, bright red. Black cherry, licorice, minerals and roasted oak on the nose. Suave, minerally and detailed, with firm structure and an almost medicinal austerity. Finishes with substantial chewy tannins and a note... 90+ Deep, bright red. Black cherry, licorice, minerals and roasted oak on the nose. Suave, minerally and detailed, with firm structure and an almost medicinal austerity. Finishes with substantial chewy tannins and a note of blackberry. In a tight phase today: I would expect this to put on weight as it ages. (I'm sorry not to be able to provide notes on the Faiveley 2005s. As I finished tasting a full set of samples at the end of my November tour from a vintage that Erwan Faiveley described as "classic," I mentioned that although I had tasted some standouts, such as Echezeaux, Clos Vougeot, Mazis-Chambertin, Chambertin-Clos de Beze and Clos des Cortons-and, at the premier cru level, the Chambolle-Musigny La Combe d'Orveau and Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Saint-Georges and Les Porets Saint-Georges-I found a number of wines disturbingly tannic and dry. It turns out that my samples had been pulled from barrel nine days before my visit (!). While this is clearly a very strong vintage chez Faiveley, it would not be fair to Faiveley or to IWC readers to publish notes on old samples.)

Lower register and very earthy dark pinot fruit with game, spice and kirsch nuances complement the sauvage, brawny and sappy mouth coating full-bodied and muscular flavors that culminate in a wonderfully intense and frank... Lower register and very earthy dark pinot fruit with game, spice and kirsch nuances complement the sauvage, brawny and sappy mouth coating full-bodied and muscular flavors that culminate in a wonderfully intense and frank finish. I very much like the depth here and there is good overall harmony plus in the context of the vintage, reasonably good phenolic ripeness. In sum, this is very Corton without being tough.
