Available for:
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. Pair with seared foie gras with armagnac, game, quail, full-flavoured cheeses such as Cîteaux or Reblochon.

This is a breathtaking expression of Faively's benchmark grand-cru vineyard, owned solely by the Faively family since 1874. Reverberating with flavors of blackberries and Morello cherries, it's a supple, sinewy wine struck with veins of anise, ash and peppery, earthen spices. Vibrant and upright in structure, it should gain finesse well through 2040 and hold further still.

Wow. This is a solid Corton with ripe strawberries, plums, bark and porcini. Full-bodied with tight, fine tannins, focused depth of fruit and excellent length. Quite muscular for the vintage. Better after 2023.

The Clos des Cortons Faiveley near the top of the Corton et Rognet slope has been in the family since 1874. This site, just over three hectares, is essentially a northern continuation of Les Renardes. In 2018, the vineyard delivered a tightly wound and tannic wine with lots of dark fruit. For now, it is marked by the cask aging, but there are the firm tannins, rich body, and length to suggest this will age exceptionally well.

A generous dollop of moderately toasty oak mixes with the highly layered nose of black cherry, cassis, warm earth and an impressive array of sauvage and underbrush notes. There is excellent richness to the overtly powerful and muscular flavors that possess an imposing sense of scale that continues onto the textured and mouth coating finish. Like several of the wines in the range in 2013 this is a big but not really massive wine that retains a sense of proportion even though the underlying structure is quite firm. This will need plenty of patience however."

"A pretty red, this features wild strawberry and cherry fruit along with accents of spice and licorice, showing terrific harmony and length. Seductive now, but the gentle tannins suggest this could benefit from at least another few years of age.

The 2018 Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru has an attractive, pure bouquet of red currant and cranberry fruit laced with wilted rose petals and crushed stone. The palate is smooth on the entry with sappy red berry fruit, harmonious and fleshy. This is the best of four Faiveley reds that I tasted from this vintage and it shows the best composure and complexity on the finish. Excellent.

The 2018 Corton Grand Cru Clos des Cortons Faiveley is showing nicely in bottle, mingling aromas of cassis and dark berry fruit with hints of baking chocolate, grilled meats, forest floor and sweet spices. Medium to full-bodied, rich and elegantly muscular, its ripe core of fruit structured by powdery tannins and lively acids, it's long and expansive. This is a deep, brooding Clos des Corton that will demand bottle age to realize all its potential.
