Corton Red and White Wines

The hilly countryside of the Corton appellation can inspire awe and adoration on first sight. “What a magical land,” you might exclaim, exploring the lush green slopes and valleys of this region. From a viticultural perspective, Corton has a lot to offer to a wine hunter such as yourself, as it boasts a variety of terroir compositions, which gives each wine a unique identity and feel, making them a joy to collect and sample. As Côte de Beaune’s largest Grand Cru property appellation for red wine, Corton’s wine production has a 95% representation of strong, noble Pinot Noir.

The texture and flavor of Corton’s reds is something to behold, as the terroir sings to your palate using notes of fresh forest berries, aromatic violets, leather, and a bassy earthen undertone. Different sub-regions will add their own flair, of course, and you can expect wines from two neighbors to differ somewhat strongly. Exploring this region’s produce is an exciting endeavor, as they demonstrate the full potential of uniquely French viticulture. You’ll never get tired, trust us.

Naturally, you may want to store these marvelous wines in your cellar or save them for special occasions and big get-togethers. Luckily, they age exceptionally well and develop character as they sit in storage, only to immediately steal the show once they’re uncorked. Expect your guests to start asking a lot more wine-related questions after they experience some of Corton’s finest bottles. An essential part of any red wine lover’s collection, for sure.

2001 coche dury corton charlemagne Burgundy White

I was blown away by the power, verve and soil-driven complexity of Coche-Dury’s 2001 Corton-Charlemagne. Full yellow in color, it’s approaching maturity but shows every sign of a continuing graceful evolution in bottle. Its vibrant apple, citrus peel and brown spice aromas and flavors have been joined by deeper notes of brioche, white truffle and porcini. This wonderfully tactile, plush wine boasts compelling sweetness leavened by lively acidity, and the musky, minerally, slowly building finish begs for a side of crustaceans.Vinous Media | 97 VMThe 2001 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is a rather exotic rendition of this great wine, revealing an expressive bouquet of peach, white currants, apricot preserve, oatmeal and a light framing of toasty new oak, bearing the signatures of the botrytis that marked the vintage. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, bright and ample, as structurally open-knit as the 2000 vintage but more powerful, textural and large-scaled. Like the 2000, it’s also drinking at its peak. The 2001 is a comparatively gourmand rendition of Coche’s Corton-Charlemagne that would pair well with traditional cuisine bourgeois.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 95 RP(Domaine Jean-François Coche-Dury Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru White) This has always exhibited a deep yellow color. In contrast to a lovely bottle that I enjoyed several years ago, the one in the tasting was clearly advanced with distinct notes of butterscotch. There was good minerality and verve to the broad-shouldered flavors and the advanced character remained only on the nose. As such, this was at least drinkable but the nose was definitely bothersome. Not Rated. My review from May, 2007 was: Like some (but not all) ’01s, there was a pronounced deep yellow color but absolutely no trace of oxidation to the nicely complex and slightly oaky nose that leads to rich, full and beautifully defined flavors that are drinking well now though should continue to develop positively, all wrapped in a long and stylish finish. Compared to the heights to which this wine routinely ascends, the ’01 is a very good but not truly great Corton-Charlemagne. Approachable now but it should hold at this level for several more years so there is no rush.Burghound | 92 BH

2014 coche dury corton charlemagne Burgundy White

Enjoyed over dinner in Burgundy after tasting many truly lovely wines, this wine could erase your memory of anything else. It is a riveting tour-de-force, with a medium lemon-yellow colour and heady, incredibly forward aromas of ripe orchard and stone fruit with exotic spices, butter, and a bit of oak. There is fresh acidity, plenty of body and extract, and incredible finesse and elegance as well. The combination of youthful fruit, fresh acidity, and robust density carry this wine to an interminable finish.Decanter | 100 DECThe 2014 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is a wine that leaves you lost for words - never helpful in this profession. It begs the question: Why are not all Corton-Charlemagnes like this? It has a stunning bouquet with a profound mix of yellow plum, Mirabelle, Seville orange marmalade, those liquid minerals and later, scents of cold wet limestone. The palate is incredibly powerful with stunning acidity. There are multiple layers of spice-tinged citrus fruit, just a faint tinge of marzipan, wondrous umami sensation in the mouth with grilled walnut and a hint of pralines towards the finish. This represents an astonishing Corton-Charlemagne that might end up touching the imperious 2005. Readers should note that Raphael told me that the release of this will be delayed, just like the 2005 and 2010. Put it on your wish list and wait.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 99 RPThe 2014 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru was the first time I had tasted the wine in bottle after first sampling it at the domaine. It is more open than expected and displays less reduction than the 2005 tasted alongside, offering penetrating citrus peel, lanolin, crushed limestone and fragrant yellow flower scents. The palate is beautifully balanced with razor-sharp acidity and an extraordinarily saline, praline-tinged finish that electrifies the senses. It flirted with perfection in 2016 and it is still within a whisker now. Tasted at Otto’s restaurant in London.Vinous Media | 99 VMA still somewhat reticent nose grudingly speaks of discreet wood, smoky mineral reduction, petrol, green apple, white rose and spice elements. In the same vein as the nose, the dense and well-muscled broad-shouldered flavors are still moderately tightly wound while delivering an abundance of minerality on the massively persistent, highly complex and perfectly well-balanced finish that is quite dry yet not especially austere. This is sufficiently backward at present to need continued cellaring even though with say 30 or so minutes of air in a decanter, it could be approached. With that qualification duly noted, I would strongly advised holding this unicorn of a wine for another 5ish years. In a word, OK, two, absolutely brilliant.Burghound | 98 BH

2014 faiveley corton clos des cortons Burgundy Red

A fresh, cool and moderately restrained nose speaks of various red and dark berries along with plenty of iron-inflected earth, animale and pretty floral nuances. The lush, even opulent flavors certainly don’t lack for size, weight and power as they coat the palate while buffering the notably firm tannic spine on the muscular, driving and wonderfully persistent finish. This too is impressively concentrated and built-to-age.Burghound | 93-95 BHBright medium-dark red. Reticent but very pure aromas of cherry, dark berries, licorice, musky underbrush and salty minerals; smells riper and less peppery than the ’13, and a bit Cabernet-like. Thick but fresh on entry, then wonderfully suave, juicy and fine-grained in the mid-palate, showing terrific vibrancy and lift as well as a rose petal topnote that’s not yet present in the 2015. Still plenty of medicinal reserve here but this is a step up in finesse from the 2013 and distinctly longer and subtler on the aftertaste. Finishes with very fine-grained, tongue-saturating tannins and a subtle whiplash of pungent red and black fruits, minerals and soil. There’s incipient body here but the wine is still youthfully imploded and more salty than sweet. Its balance and finesse, though, make it easy to taste today. Extended aeration brought an even silkier texture and lovely sweet Pinot tang of red berries, rose petal and minerals, even a hint of blood orange. Obviously still very young but this wine struck me as a bit more pliant than it was shortly after bottling. It’s also hard to believe that such a stylish wine could have been produced here under the old regime. (13.2% alcohol; 3.45 pH; 3.75 g/l acidity; 33 h/h).Vinous Media | 94 VMThis is pure, featuring cherry, berry, floral and spice aromas and flavors married to a vivid structure. Firms up nicely as the fruit and supporting matrix build to a long finish. Best from 2020 through 2033. 120 cases imported.Wine Spectator | 94 WSSweet spicy oaky nose with vibrant black cherry fruit; stylish. Rich, suave, full-bodied plate boasting fine-grained tannins that don’t lack texture or force. Good acidity and length. Drinking Window 2020 - 2035Decanter | 94 DECA flagship of the Faiveley range, this is a structured wine with great acidity and beautiful perfumes. The wine is dense, already balanced with the red fruits shining through the tannins. It will develop slowly and will not be ready to drink before 2023.Wine Enthusiast | 94 WEThe product of a dry spring and a rainy summer, the 2014 Corton Grand Cru Clos des Cortons Faiveley offers up an appealing bouquet of wild berries, dark chocolate, cedar, espresso roast and candied peel that’s framed by a deft touch of creamy new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, with an ample, textural attack but a tight-knit, somewhat closed mid-palate that’s structured around fine-grained but firm tannins. While the 2014 isn’t as as broad-shouldered as the 2015, it’s a powerful, structured wine that will demand some patience.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 93 RPGeorges Faiveley won the right to include his family name in the name of this grand cru in 1937; it’s a 7.44-acre parcel within Le Rognet. Some of the vines today date back to 1936 and ’56, providing a complex 2014 with lasting floral intensity. The dense, raspberry-scented fruit is completely savory, with powerful tannins that lend it broad richness. Cellar this until it’s ten years old before you consider drinking it.

Shows terrific complexity and clarity. Best from 2022 through 2032.Wine Spectator | 95 WSOnly just beginning to open up, this is a very sophisticated white Burgundy with great elegance and a sleeker body than many wines of this category. Excellent concentration, married to a cool and fresh personality, the intense mineral character driving the very long and pure finish. From vineyards under conversion to organic cultivation.

There is good punch to the tautly muscular if not especially dense middle weight flavors that exude evident minerality on the firm, clean and dry finale.

2018 faiveley corton clos des cortons Burgundy Red

Wow. This is a solid Corton with ripe strawberries, plums, bark and porcini. Full-bodied with tight, fine tannins, focused depth of fruit and excellent length. Quite muscular for the vintage. Better after 2023.James Suckling | 96 JSThe Clos des Cortons Faiveley near the top of the Corton et Rognet slope has been in the family since 1874. This site, just over three hectares, is essentially a northern continuation of Les Renardes. In 2018, the vineyard delivered a tightly wound and tannic wine with lots of dark fruit. For now, it is marked by the cask aging, but there are the firm tannins, rich body, and length to suggest this will age exceptionally well. Drinking Window 2021 - 2034.Decanter | 95 DEC(Domaine Faiveley Corton-Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru Red) 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 starting 2040)Burghound | 93-95 BHThe 2018 Corton Grand Cru Clos des Cortons Faiveley is showing nicely in bottle, mingling aromas of cassis and dark berry fruit with hints of baking chocolate, grilled meats, forest floor and sweet spices. Medium to full-bodied, rich and elegantly muscular, its ripe core of fruit structured by powdery tannins and lively acids, it’s long and expansive. This is a deep, brooding Clos des Corton that will demand bottle age to realize all its potential.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 93+ RPThe 2018 Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru has an attractive, pure bouquet of red currant and cranberry fruit laced with wilted rose petals and crushed stone. The palate is smooth on the entry with sappy red berry fruit, harmonious and fleshy. This is the best of four Faiveley reds that I tasted from this vintage and it shows the best composure and complexity on the finish. Excellent.Vinous Media | 93+ VM

In spite of the ripe-orange and exotic-fruit character that pours from the glass, there’s nothing superficial about this wine. Thanks to its generosity and very attractive fruit, this makes a very friendly initial impression on the palate, then the intense minerality comes through, building to a serious crescendo at the very fresh finish. Drink or hold.James Suckling | 96 JSA rich, opulent white, this features lemon cake, lime blossom, baking spice and stone flavors. Though intense, there’s also a sense of restraint, yet the finish is long and complex. Drink now through 2027. 630 cases made, 66 cases imported.Wine Spectator | 94 WS(Domaine du Pavillon (Pommard) - Domaines Albert Bichot Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru White) Smoky aromas of Granny Smith apples, acacia and a plethora of citrus influences are trimmed in discreet wood influence. There is fine volume to the delicious and almost creamy larger-scaled flavors that brim with both dry extract and minerality on the lemon-tinged and youthfully austere finale. This compact and serious effort should definitely benefit from mid-term or perhaps even a decade of cellaring. (Drink starting 2027)Burghound | 93 BHBichot has 1.2ha in Languettes, high on the slope, with a south/south-east exposition. The southern exposition is of major importance here, if one is to avoid over-ripeness. In 2019, the wine has very exotic, almost tropical aromas, while on the palate the texture is dense and creamy, and the ripe pear fruit touched with honey is even more apparent. A wine of luxurious charm. Drinking Window 2024 - 2039.Decanter | 92 DECThe 2019 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru comes from 1.2 hectares of vines in Les Longuettes. Matured in 35% new oak, it has a perfumed nose of yellow fruit, nectarine and peach skin aromas. The palate is well balanced with a light pineapple and passion fruit opening and well-judged acidity.

The 2019 Corton Clos des Maréchaudes Grand Cru, a monopole for Bichot, is matured with around 40% new oak. It has a higher-toned bouquet than the Aloxe-Corton Clos des Marechales, delivering scents of kirsch, crushed strawberry and pressed rose petals. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity, and nicely focused, displaying well-integrated oak on the black-pepper-tinged finish. Excellent. Vinous Media | 92-94 VM(Domaine du Pavillon (Pommard) - Domaines Albert Bichot Corton-Clos des Maréchaudes Grand Cru Red) This is compositionally similar to the 1er but notably more restrained.

This could use more depth but it’s clear there is a bit more overall potential here compared to the 1er. (Drink starting 2034)Burghound | 93 BHThis 0.54ha in the grand cru portion of the vineyard has yielded a wine of greater concentration than from the top of the terrace, where there is a bit more clay.

The 2019 Corton Clos-du-Roi Grand Cru offers slightly more red fruit than the other two Cortons from Dubreuil-Fontaine, and smells spicier, with touches of cumin and clove. The palate is medium-bodied with lithe tannins. This has the finest balance and the most elegance of the three Cortons tasted, demonstrating more terroir expression toward the finish, and a prudent sprinkling of white pepper on the aftertaste. Glorious.Vinous Media | 92-94 VM(Domaine Dubreuil-Fontaine Corton-Clos du Roi Grand Cru Red) Exceptionally ripe aromas include those of prune, cassis, warm earth and roasted fruit that seem a bit flat. There is much better freshness and verve on the palate of the mineral-suffused medium weight flavors that are relatively refined thanks to the fine-grained tannins shaping the firm, youthfully austere and beautifully long finish. The nose does not appeal to me though the palate impression is attractive, and the key question is how this will evolve and that is hard to predict.

It has an understated bouquet of light dandelion and patisserie aromas. The well-balanced palate displays fine delineation and a tang of marmalade toward the finish. This is a nicely composed Corton-Charlemagne, though I wager it will be best consumed within its first decade. Vinous Media | 92-94 VMProminent aromas of mineral reduction and floral elements are laced with hints of wood toast, citrus peel, apple and anise.

2020 domaine comte senard corton clos du roi grand cru Burgundy Red

For me, this is the most complete of the Cortons from the domaine. The plum and cherry fruit is forward but discreet, with subtle, earthy nuance and well-integrated oak spice. The texture is silky and elegant yet not lacking at all in structure - an outstanding effort. This Corton is produced from 0.64ha in the centre of the slope between DRC and de Montille. Half of the grapes are vinified as whole clusters after a brief maceration and the wine ages 18 months in cask (40% new). Drinking Window: 2025 - 2060Decanter | 97 DEC(Domaine Comte Senard Corton-Clos du Roi Grand Cru Red) Moderate amounts of wood and menthol stop short of fighting with the ripe aromas of poached plum, black cherry liqueur, anise, and Asian-style tea. The velvety, suave and very rich larger-scaled flavors possess excellent punch along with good minerality that seems to build on the impressively long and well-balanced finale. This will need to develop better depth with time in bottle but that should reasonably occur if allowed at least a few years of cellaring. (Drink starting 2032)Burghound | 92-94 BH

Made from two plots, one each in Pernand and Ladoix, but just two barrels this year instead of eight. Pale lemon and lime. A more reductive nose with a little oaky note, one new barrel in the two. Will take some time for the fruit to push past that. Plenty of fruit volume though and the style is typical of the appellation. White fruit, lemons, a little banana note, and a stony finish. Indeed plenty of weight at the finish. Drink from 2026-2032.Jasper Morris | 93 JM
