Corton “Clos Des Cortons”, Grand Cru, 2006, Domaine Faiveley

128,50

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. This is a fine wine for cellaring.

Will match very well with Game, Mature Cheeses…

Description

This Burgundian domaine has been a family estate for nearly 200 years. Erwan Faiveley, 7th generation, took the reins in 2006 from his father when he was only 25. They have earned their reputation as one of Burgundy’s finest and most trusted, with an unparalleled selection from the Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise totalling over 120 hectares.

The Clos des Cortons Faiveley is the only Grand Cru to bear the name of its owner. After a long legal battle, led by Georges Faiveley, this appellation was confirmed by the Court of Appeal in 1937.
