Faiveley Clos des Cortons Faiveley Corton Grand Cru Domaine Faiveley Domaine Faiveley Neu de Dhl 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

94-96 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): Allow me to cut through everything else and bluntly state that the '05 Clos des Corton Faiveley is quite simply the best young example of this wine that I have ever had the privilege of evaluating. A richly and densely fruited nose that is at once earthy and quite animale along with breathtaking complexity complements to perfection the big, rich and sleekly muscled flavors that are very firmly structured but again, not at all aggressive and the sheer depth of material on the palate-drenching finish is nothing short of phenomenal. To be sure, this is not and will not be a wine for even the moderately impatient and I'm not completely sure that 15 years will be sufficient to really see it at its best to buy it only with the (resolute) intention to allow it a long and comfortable cellar snooze. Remarkable. 2020+.

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