Wine Critic Reviews for 2019 Faiveley Corton Clos des Cortons

A truly amazing Corton, thanks to the laser beam of sour-cherry aroma that shoots right through this sleek and vibrant wine. Great concentration, but remains light on its feet. The mineral finish extends and extends as you struggle to take it all in. Still very young with enormous aging potential. Drink or hold.

James Suckling | 98 JS
(Domaine Faiveley, Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru Monopole, Burgundy, France, Red) From the 2.77ha Clos des Cortons Faiveley in the lieu-dit of Corton et Rognet in Ladoix, the wine is silky and subtle, almost un-Corton-like in its subtlety. This has marvellous elegance and a sharp, delineated cherry and earth fruit character. Structured, tannic, yet supple and approachable, this will drink young but age for decades. (Drink between 2024-2049)

Decanter | 93 DEC
(Domaine Faiveley Corton-Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru Red) Here too there is a mentholated top note to the much earthier aromas of poached plum, underbrush, red currant and touches of the sauvage. There is excellent verve to the equally broad-shouldered and muscular flavors that possess outstanding complexity on the tannic, serious and beautifully long finish that is a bit less austere than it usually is at this early juncture. This beautifully well-made effort will also require extended bottle age to reveal its full potential, but it should very much be worth the wait. (Drink starting 2039)

The 2019 Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru comes from the 2.77-hectare monopole. This was actually quite closed on the nose compared with Faiveley’s Gevrey Grand Crus, coming across earthy and rather sullen at first, and opening with earthy/woodland aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and harmonious on the entry. The fine, lightly spiced finish reveals clove and touches of graphite. Nice persistence here. This holds a lot of promise.

Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
