Domaine Faiveley Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley 2020
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
"What a stunning fragrance this Corton has, with ripe damson, pomegranate and floral notes interacting in a very exciting way with the wild-herb notes. Very concentrated and focused, without any sense of weight, the finish incredibly vibrant and mineral. Really lifts off at the very long finish. Drink or hold." James Suckling 98 points Drink 2025-45
This aromatic red reveals rose, sandalwood, cherry and spice aromas and flavors, allied to a silky texture. Elegant and juicy, with terrific balance and a superlong, mineral-tinged finish. So polished and stylish, you could enjoy this now, but it will improve over time. Best from 2026 through 2045.
Mingling deep fruit tones evocative of red cherries and plums with notions of loamy soil, licorice, orange rind, rose petals and sweet spices, the 2020 Corton Grand Cru Clos des Cortons Faiveley is full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, with terrific concentration, tangy acids and a long, saline finish. This is extremely promising.
The 2020 Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru has quite a rich and outgoing bouquet, plenty of mulberry fruit here laced with touches of tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, quite ripe and slightly confit towards the finish, generous but let's see how long-term it is.
