Nice deep reddish colour with a hint of royal purple. Oaky, savoury, addictive!

Full red with ruby tones. Incredible high-pitched nose combines raspberry, pepper, rose petal, red licorice, crushed stone, flowers, menthol and eucalyptus. The palate offers extraordinary sweetness but the wineandrsquo;s minerally lift and intense sappiness gives it a weightless impression. Shows the noble side of Corton grand cru, not to mention uncanny intensity; Faiveley made 42 hectoliters per hectare in 2009, but the wine tastes like half that. Finishes with incredible length and verve; offhand, I canandrsquo;t think of a longer 2009. Should be a cellar treasure.

Enticing aromas of black cherry and black currant introduce this silky red. As the fruit unfolds, smoke, spice and mineral elements emerge, persisting through the long aftertaste. This is harmonious and suave, with the class and complexity worthy of its status as a grand cru. So fleshy, the tannins are buried now. Best from 2014 through 2030.

Bright medium red. Medicinal black cherry, licorice and a stony element on the nose. Large-scaled, powerful and penetrating, with a sappy small-berry intensity and an exhilarating balance of sweetness and acidity. Finishes with crushed stone and saline nuances and outstanding lift. Wonderfully sappy Corton from what Hervet described as a normal yield of about 40 hectoliters per hectare. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Mar/Apr 10, Stephen Tanzer
