Faiveley 2003 Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru (Corton)

This is tough as nails right now, but also packed with almost liqueur-like black cherry fruit. Meaty nuances and chocolate-fudge richness are stopped abruptly by firm, astringent tannins on the finish. It's too tannic to enjoy now; the question is whether it will resemble one of the great '47 red Burgundies with age, or dry out like some of the '76s. Joe Czerwinski
