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...

This east-facing 2.77-hectare parcel above Ladoix is part of Corton Rognet. It’s a chalky, elegant, refined red with none of the scratchy tannins that the Grand Cru can display, succulent red fruits and a backbone of chiselled acidity. 2018-28

This 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.

Bright, dark red, the darkest of a flight of Corton grand crus. Brooding aromas of black cherry, licorice, black pepper and minerals. Suave and fine-grained but very backward; blacker in its fruit character than most Cortons in 2014, with an impression of peppery acidity energizing the middle palate. Finishes very savory, dry, firm and long, with a repeating licorice note and a strong sense of bound-up energy. This dense, youthfully taut, powerfully structured wine is going to require a lot of patience and may ultimately merit an even higher score.

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.
