Domaine Joseph Faiveley, Corton Clos des Cortons (monopole) Grand Cru 1997

Twenty years on.

Ruby.  Still formidably yet finely tannic,  this darkly-shaded and multi-layered Corton really mines the mineral profundity of this site.  Fireside hearth, rose oil and currant leaf.  Surprisingly deep for a ’97, it’s like a diver who needs time to surface, having first laid eyes on the unseen. Now – 2022+.
