Ruby red in colour with clear purple reflections. The nose is powerful, concentrated and exudes notes of black cherry and spice. The palate is rich and smooth with good energy and concentration. The finish is elegant. An excellent wine for cellar ageing. Serve with : Seared foie gras with armagnac, game, quail, full-flavoured cheeses such as Cîteaux or Reblochon.

Plenty of resinous oak coats this red, leaving a veneer on the cherry and berry flavors. Compact, with a layer of dusty tannins on the finish. With air, the oak subsides, revealing pretty cherry, floral and spice notes, making this more elegant. Best from 2019 through 2033. 1,315 cases made.

Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Corton Clos des Cortons from Faiveley has a very elegant and pure bouquet that expresses more essence of pinoté than others. There is a candied quality to the aromatics, perhaps even a playfulness. The palate is well balanced and supple in the mouth, perhaps the oak a little too strong towards the finish. This is a Corton that seemingly wants to exude finesse, but in order for that to happen, the imprint of the winemaking needs to ebb away. My score is based on the opinion that it will.
