The Faiveley family has owned this Monopole Clos – where the vines straddle the plots known as Le Rognet and Le Corton – since 1874. Here they regularly produce one of the grandest, long-lived, most complex Cortons in existence. Recent fine-tuning of the wine-making has resulted in softer tannins, without loss of potential longevity. Purple-ruby of medium depth, with ripe, black fruit aromas very present. Palate has impressive structure, dense fruitiness, smooth texture – finishing with a peacock’s tail of flavours, held together in a rich, well-rounded tannic framework. A magnificent wine, for medium and long-term keeping (for drinking 2022-2035+).
