Subtle notes of wood and menthol don't unduly intrude upon the appeal of the pretty and perfumed aromas of red currant, cherry, leather and warm earth that display plenty of sauvage character. The delicious and comparatively fleshy broad-shouldered flavors possess solid mid-palate density that seems almost supple yet still firm supporting tannins appear as the complex finish sits on the palate. For my taste this is still several years away from its apogee and I would advise continued forbearance.
Good deep red. Deep, complex nose offers red fruits, iron, cherry cola, exotic flowers and underbrush. Broad, sappy and mouthfilling, with an unusually lush texture for this cuvee at this early stage. Fine-grained and voluminous wine with captivating savory, earthy complexity. Finishes with very suave tannins and lovely length. This has the structure to age, but today I'm not finding quite the punch or iodiney minerality I found from barrel a year ago. (ST)
The 2006 Faiveley Corton had only been bottled a month prior to the Les Grands Jours tastings, and consequently was not fully recovered. I have to imagine that the wine is even better than it showed in Aloxe, and it did not show badly by any stretch of the imagination. The bouquet is deep and vibrant, as it offers up a youthful mélange of red and dark berries, vinesmoke, earth, venison, coffee and cedar. Today the wine is much less marked by its new oak than the two Chambolles above. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep, soil-driven and today quite bound up in its structure, but with fine length and nascent complexity. The palate impression is a touch flat from the recent mise, but the wine shows good freshness, firm tannins and excellent grip. It will probably prove to be even better than my score. (Drink between 2018-2050).
