aiveley Corton 2012 Header

48 Bottles of one of Burgundy's Most Popular Reds


The Clos des Cortons Faiveley is the only Grand Cru to bear the name of its owner. After a long legal battle, led by Georges Faiveley, this appellation was confirmed by the Court of Appeal in 1937.


The monopole has a surface area of 3 ha 01 a 52 ca. The vines were planted in 1936, 1956, 1965, 1967, 1971, 1977, 1980, 1981, 1987 and 2002.

 

For many years this has been one of the outstanding wines of Corton and the new 2012 is no exception. We have 48 bottles available so you will need to act quickly.

Faiveley Corton Label  

Tim Atkin MW: 

Typically of Corton, this is quite tannic in current, youthful state. It's also quite marked by new oak. But this monopole vineyard wine has a lot of potential, with fresh acidity, firm, focused fruit flavours, good length and a note of dried herbs. Very true to its terroir, and comparatively reasonably priced, too. 2018-2895 Points

 

Burghound: The quality of this wine has skyrocketed over the past few vintages; while it was always very good, it has now become one of the most consistent performers in the Faiveley portfolio. There is quite a bit of wood influence at present and it fights a bit with the spicy dark berry fruit aromas that exhibit plenty of earth and game character. The impressively scaled and concentrated broad-shouldered flavors possess an opulent yet entirely serious mouth feel before culminating in a balanced, explosively and tremendously persistent finish. This is a bit woody today yet the underlying material is such that it seems all but evident that it will successfully integrate the oak in time. 2032+. 93-95 Points
