  • Goedhuis, December 2019

    A two hectare grand cru on the hillside of Corton which uniquely has the Faiveley name attached to it. Always one of the domaine’s flagship wines. Gorgeous, attractive raspberry and red fruit scents. It opens with such harmony, and then wonderful complexity develops in the palate with an impressive sense of power and intensity. A wine which should be allowed to age to see its true potential.

  • Burghound, January 2020, Score: 93-95

    Moderate wood and menthol influences frame the intensely earthy and gamy aromas of both red and dark currant. There is excellent energy to the stony medium weight plus flavors that are at once succulent yet powerful where the latter carries over to the serious, firmly structured and mildly warm finish that goes on and on. This somewhat rustic effort is very Corton in basic character and a wine that's going to require patience. Drink 2040+. Don't miss!

  • Wine Advocate, January 2020, Score: 93-95+

    Aromas of wild berries, dark chocolate, grilled squab, warm spices and forest floor introduce the 2018 Corton Grand Cru Clos des Cortons Faiveley, a medium to full-bodied, youthfully reserved wine that's deep, lively and concentrated, concluding with a long and beautifully defined finish. This is another terrific rendition of Faiveley's emblematic grand cru in the making.

  • Jasper Morris MW, January 2020, Score: 94-96

    Monopole. Glowing mid purple. Rich, intense black-purple. The bouquet is as saturated as the colour. Beautifully heady yet seems perfectly poised. The new oak adds a sheen which the wealth of fruit can support. Something of everything on the nose here, even a faint green streak. Very fresh style which is typical of their vineyard. Lots of energy. Note this is tasted after the riper and more luscious Côte de Nuits wines.

Region

Corton

The Grands Crus of Corton, a red made from Pinot Noir, and Corton Charlemagne, a white made from Chardonnay are shared between Aloxe-Corton, Ladoix Serrigny and Pernand Vergelesses. The vines for both are planted on the hillsides underneath the plateau of Corton's woodland forest. The majorityof Pinot Noir is planted in the southern and eastern sector where the soil is naturally rich with red iron clay giving additional body and power. Overall, the wines from these areas tend to be fruit forward and fleshy with a balance of round edges and fine concentration.
