About this winery

Founded in 1825, Domaine Faiveley is one of Burgundy's greatest domaines. Originally the company was a classic negotiant business, based in Nuits St. Georges and engaged in the buying and selling of wine but not the production of it. After seven generations of steadily acquiring properties throughout the Cotes de Nuits, the Cotes de Beaune, Cotes Chalonnaise and now Chablis, the Faiveley family have established themselves as the most important vineyard owners in Burgundy, with 120 hectares of...

The super fresh, sour-cherry nose leads you into a very concentrated and focused red with a lot of mineral and graphite character. The tannins are a shade firmer than in the other Grand Crus from Faiveley, but it was always that way. Deep, dark and cool finish that goes on and on.

This red starts out generous, with a supple texture buffering vivid acidity and firm tannins, allowing the cherry, strawberry, blood orange and spice flavors to star. Shuts down on the finish, delivering more structure than fruit. Licorice and sandalwood accents come into play.

The 2017 Corton Clos des Corton Faiveley Grand Cru comes from a monopole of around 3 hectares. It has quite a powerful bouquet of assertive red currant and cranberry fruit, fig jam and a hint of dates. The medium-bodied palate displays supple tannin and a fine bead of acidity. Quite stocky in style, with a saline, quite persistent finish that lingers in the mouth. Excellent.

November 2019

The 2017 Corton Grand Cru Clos des Cortons Faiveley is showing very well, mingling aromas of blackberries, red berries and cassis with notions of cinnamon, clove and blood orange. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with a fleshy core of fruit, ripe but lively acids and powdery framing tannins, concluding with a sapid, youthfully oak-inflected finish. This is a deep and comparatively structured effort in the context of this approachable vintage, and it will merit a bit of bottle age.

January 2019

An 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.
