Winemaker's Notes

A rather intense black color. The nose is powerful, concentrated, fruity and woody. The attack is strong and tannic. The tannins are firm, but well incorporated by the smoothness. We are in the presence of a wine of great volume, with supple tannins and very long-lasting aromas and tastes. This is a fine wine for cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

"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 wine'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 can't think of a longer 2009. Should be a cellar treasure."
96 Points

"This sports one of the ripest noses in the entire range with distinctly spicy notes adding interest to the admirably fresh plum and mocha suffused aromas that precede highly energetic, concentrated and big-bodied flavors that are extremely concentrated and the dry extract imparts a seductive texture to the mildly austere, balanced and hugely long finish. This is one of the most promising vintages of this wine that I have ever seen but note that this will definitely not be an early drinker as the supporting structure is more than simply firm.
Rating: 93-96"

"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. 300 cases imported."
95 Points

"While the aroma has pronounced new wood characters, the palate is more subtle, emphasizing the powerful dark fruits, coffee note and sweet fruit tannins as much as wood. With a delicious, opulent full-bodied feel to it, this will age well over 5–6 years and more."
