The serious depth is held in reserve for now, offering black cherry, black currant, incense, earth and mineral flavors. This supple red is balanced by fleshy fruit up front, with the buried structure emerging on the finish. Reveals a terrific aftertaste of graphite, licorice and mineral. Best from 2023 through 2042. - Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator

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. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

Bright ruby. Fruit-driven aromas of crushed black cherry and dark raspberry convey outstanding pungent lift. Incredibly concentrated, sappy and primary, conveying outstanding juicy purity and compelling thickness to its dark fruit and violet flavors. At once hugely powerful and utterly seamless, this wine finishes with great spicy length and lift. A real essence of Burgundy--and likely to evolve gracefully for 25 years or more. Stephen Tanzer

The Corton Clos des Corton made from a large plot at the top of the Corton hill is a quite exceptional wine – and by some margin the best red Corton I have tasted. The bouquet is crammed with sweet red and dark fruit – detailed, refined and complex – with a airy and zen like beauty. On the palate intense, harmonious, deep and long – an effortless display of concentration and balance. The mid-palate fruit is both sweet, generous and juicy – effortless display of energy in a vibrant and long finish. I do feel that this wine deserves it – so an extraordinary Corton in the making. Perhaps I’m too generous – but was quite stunned to taste this beauty. Steen Ohman - Winehog

Cask sample. Mid crimson. Dark, almost savoury fruit, hidden but inviting. Firm, dry, chewy and all so harmonious even now. Long and embryonic. (JH) Julia Harding MW - Jancis Robinson

Tasting note: 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 - Burghound
