Produced from old vines, this wine - from one of the great houses of Beaune - is powerful, concentrated, aromatic, structured and fresh. More info
Le Clos des Cortons Faiveley is one of the very rare Burgundian appellations to bear a family name, courtesy of a ruling dating from 1930. This powerful, concentrated wine, produced from vines over 60 years old, develops intense aromas of fresh red fruit (blackcurrant, cherry) when young, and truffle and leather after ripening by the passage of the years. It has a solid structure, with strong tannins and high acidity. A wine with great aging potential.
The Faiveley family has been running this domain since 1825. In 2005 Erwan Faiveley succeeded his father in the management of the property which is one of the largest ones in Burgundy: 10 hectares of Grands Crus and nearly 25 hectares of 1ers Crus, including several monopoly climates (Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos des Issarts, Beaune 1er Cru Clos de l'Ecu or the Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru). The vineyard remains very fragmented with an average appellation size of 1 hectare. In general, the wines of the domain are dense and fruity.
