Faiveley Corton Clos des Cortons Grand Cru Pinot Noir Wine 2011

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Lean yet succulent and defined sporting aromatic floral cherry strawberry and spice notes accented by a touch of briar. The structure is firm and linear with a tightly wound finish for now. Very elegant this should come into its own in the next several years. Best from 2017 through 2028.

Medium red. Ineffable nose and palate offer red fruits minerals spices and flowers complicated by game earth and leather. Sweet concentrated and very intense boasting outstanding density and a fine-grained texture with salty minerality giving the wine a weightless impression that s remarkable considering its density. A strong tannic spine and brisk acidity energize and draw out the finish of this sharply delineated pristine grand cru. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

As is usually the case with this wine when it s young the nose is restrained to the point of being almost mute though aggressive swirling liberates aromas of earth spice red currant and hints of the sauvage. And instead of the robust and well-muscled mid-palate there is an almost caressing mouth feel to the full-bodied yet refined flavors because while the supporting tannins are definitely firm and dense they are also quite finely-grained. There is excellent length to the moderately austere

Good deep red. A bit darker on the nose than the grand crus from Gevrey-Chambertin offering explosive aromas of crushed raspberry black cherry exotic spices and a touch of smoke. Compellingly rich and seamless in the mouth with terrific sappy verve to the urgent flavors of red berries minerals and game. The very long slowly rising finish boasts outstanding energy and thrust and saturates the mouth with sweet perfume. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
