Wine EnthusiastRounded and rich, it is full of dark fruits and red cherries that combine with firm tannins and great acidity. This comes from a parcel of the Corton Rognets Grand Cru that unusually has been given the Faiveley name. Drink from 2020.

International Wine CellarGood deep red. A bit darker on the nose than the grand crus from Gevrey-Chambertin, offering explosive aromas of crushed raspberry, black cherry, exotic spices and a touch of smoke. Compellingly rich and seamless in the mouth, with terrific sappy verve to the urgent flavors of red berries, minerals and game. The very long, slowly rising finish boasts outstanding energy and thrust and saturates the mouth with sweet perfume.

Wine SpectatorLean, 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. 304 cases imported.

BurghoundAs is usually the case with this wine when its young, the nose is restrained to the point of being almost mute though aggressive swirling liberates aromas of earth, spice, red currant and hints of the sauvage. And instead of the robust and well-muscled mid-palate there is an almost caressing mouth feel to the full-bodied yet refined flavors because while the supporting tannins are definitely firm and dense they are also quite finely-grained. There is excellent length to the moderately austere, tight, focused and linear finish that delivers outstanding persistence.

Wine AdvocateTasted 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.
