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 24 bottles left so you will need to act quickly.

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. 2018-28. 95 Points
