Founded in 1825, today Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time-honored traditions of France's noble Burgundy region. This wine is one of the  Faiveley family's most coveted of the entire range ::  Corton Clos des Cortons. Faiveley Corton Clos des Cortons is the only Grand Cru vineyard in Burgundy alongside Romanée-Conti to bear the name of its proprietor. This unique 7-acre parcel sits on the northern extremity of the hill of Corton fairly high up the slope surrounded by the famous “Le Corton” parcel. Soils are poor and well drained, made up primarily of iron-based stones and clay. The majority of the vineyard was planted between 1936 and 1967.

BurghoundThis too is extremely ripe yet manages to avoid any sense of surmaturit on the once again liqueur-like aromas of black cherry, cassis, anise and lilac scents. This is a massive wine, with simply huge mid-palate concentration, power and muscle that terminates just like the Rodin in a borderline painfully intense finale that both coats the palate and lasts for minutes. I take considerable pains to point out however that this ultra-structured and overtly austere effort is not only built for the long haul but for the very long haul. I have suggested an initial drinking window of 25 years from now but it may very well be 30 to 40. In sum, this is very old school Corton. 94-06

James SucklingFantastic aromas of crushed berries and blueberries plus hints of rose petals and mushrooms. Floral, too. Full-bodied and so and velvety with tannins that show polish and finesse. Superb potential here. 95-96
