A rather intense black colour. The nose is powerful, concentrated, fruity and woody. The attack is strong and tannic. The tannins are firm, but well incorporated by the smoothness. We are in the presence of a wine of great volume, with supple tannins and very long-lasting aromas and tastes. This is a fine wine for cellaring.
Wine Advocate 89 points - Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. There is clearly some new oak that needs to be resolved on Faiveley’s Corton Clos de Corton ‘11. The fruit here is darker compared to its peers: black cherries, blackcurrant leaf and a dab of iodine. The palate is medium-bodied and modern in style: supple, juicy ripe red and black fruits and quite structured toward the finish, though it lacks some complexity and charm and comes across as aloof. Give this one or two more years in bottle, because there is clearly good substance here to build upon.  (Nov 2014)

Wine Spectator 93 points - Lean, yet succulent and defined, sporting aromatic floral, cherry, strawberry and spice notes, accented by a touch of briar. The structure is firm and linear, with a tightly wound finish for now. Very elegant, this should come into its own in the next several years. Best from 2017 through 2028.B.S. (Feb 12 2014)

Producer
Domaine Faiveley is located in France, at the heart of Viticultural Burgundy, between Dijon and Beaune in Nuits-Saint-Georges. Historically based in the Cote de Nuits capital, the Faiveley family has progressively extended its domaine and today owns vineyards in the finest climats in Burgundy - Gevrey-Chambertin, Pommard, Volnay, Puligny-Montrachet, Mercurey and others. The vineyards are very fragmented. The average surface area per appellation is around just 1 hectare. The number of bottles produced for each wine is therefore very limited. Faiveley exploits more than 10 hectares of Grand Crus and nearly 25 hectares of Premier Crus, including several climats that are exclusively owned by the family these are the monopoles - Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos des Issarts, Beaune 1er Cru Clos de l’Ecu,… and the Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru.
