    Cuvée presentation

    The hill of Corton is situated on the boundary between the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune. This area was classified as part of the Côte de Beaune to ensure there was at least one red grand cru. The Corton-Charlemagne appellation also produces whites, which are very different from the grand crus of Chassagne or Puligny. Faiveley's Corton-Charlemagne is a thoroughbred Chardonnay. It impresses with its substance, but also its mineral power. It will be ready to deliver in full in 10-20 years' time.

    Information about domain Faiveley

    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.
