2018 Faiveley Corton-Clos des Cortons Faiveley

$179.99
2018 Faiveley Corton-Clos des Cortons Faiveley
The Clos des Cortons from Faiveley is one of the top buys for Grand Cru Burgundy, we didn't offer the 2018 on release, but we were able to source some at very sharp pricing late in the game. Year in year out, it gets great press and is a relative value compared to some of Burgundy's other monopoles. Surprisingly challenging to find in the USA, this is one of the few Cuvees we offer consistently from Faiveley. The Clos de Cortons is a monopole vineyard owned by the Faiveley family since 1874, and from the very beginning, has been a flagship wine for the Domaine. The wines from Faiveley keep improving, and this Cuvee is one that they always do exceptionally well with. The vines here were planted at different times, dating from 1932, 1956, 1965, 1971, 1976, 1977, 1981, 1987, and 2002. 2018 is a powerful and concentrated but with no lack of elegance and energy thanks to the skillfulness of winemaker Jérôme Flous. This is an excellent buy for Grand Cru Burgundy and not one to miss at this low pricing.

and winemaker Jerome Flous compares the 2019 vintage to a more concentrated 2010 and much more elegant than the '18s. The Faiveley Clos de Cortons once again is going to be one of the top Grand Cru buys of 2019 and one of the best all-time efforts.

Decanter 95 points! "The 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."

Allen Meadows 93-95 points! "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."

Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 93+ points! "The 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."

Vinous (Neil Martin) 93+ points! "The 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."
