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.

Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a short maceration the must undergoes primary fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and wooden vats. The young wines are aged in 70% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 16 to 18 months. Serve with seared foie gras with armagnac, game, quail, full-flavored cheeses such as sheep's d'affinois, delice de bourgogne.

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Corton Grand Cru Clos des Cortons Faiveley wafts from the glass with a youthfully reserved but pretty bouquet of red berries, plums, spices and raw cocoa. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny, with juicy acids, sneaky depth at the core and a long, mineral finish. Reminiscent of a somewhat broader-shouldered version of the 2007 rendition, this will offer a broad drinking window.

BurghoundAn intensely earthy nose is comprised by notably ripe dark currant aromas that are cut with underbrush, spice and a whiff of wood toast and the sauvage. There is an attractive freshness and plenty of vivacity to the velvet-textured full-bodied and overtly muscular flavors that possess terrific punch on the beautifully long, youthfully austere and notably firm finish. I like the overall sense of complexity and this too should age effortlessly. 92-94
