The Faiveley family has owned this monopole Clos – where the vines straddle the plots known as Le Rognet and Le Corton – since 1874. They regularly produce here one of the grandest, long-lived, most complex Cortons in existence. Recent, small adjustments in the wine-making have resulted in softer tannins, without loss of potential longevity. Fresh purple in colour, this wine’s nose is fragrant with roasted black fruitiness. Palate is substantially built, with intense fruit density, well-rounded tannins in admirable balance, significant freshness and impressive aftertaste. A superb wine, for medium and long-term ageing (for drinking 2022-2040+).
