Faiveley Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Bright, saturated ruby-red. Extravagant aromas of currant, strawberry, dried flowers, pepper, minerals and spicy oak. Very concentrated and dense, with an almost salty impression of extract. A minerally, sappy wine with very firm acids and an impressively large structure. Big, chewy, tannic finish calls for extended bottle aging. Offers terrific grip and style. Also tasted: Nuits-Saint-Georges Lavières. (Mar/Apr 2002)
