2020 Corton Grand Cru Clos des Cortons, Faiveley

2020 Corton Grand Cru Clos des Cortons, Faiveley

Limited to 6 bottles per customer

This vineyard has been a family monopole since 1874. It is the domaine's flagship wine and one of just two Burgundian Grands Crus to bear the name of its owner (Romanée-Conti being the other). This is so suave and intense in 2020, with sweet, smoky spice around concentrated dark fruits, with a long, mineral length.

Tasting notes

The 2020 Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru has quite a rich and outgoing bouquet, plenty of mulberry fruit here laced with touches of tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, quite ripe and slightly confit towards the finish, generous but let’s see how long-term it is.
