About this Item

Corton Clos De Corton, 1993
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
In 1825, pioneer Pierre Faiveley founded a merchant business in Nuits-Saint-Georges. His passion for trading and ageing wines soon led him to purchase his own vine parcels and establish a domaine to grow and produce his own wines. Today, at 115 hectares, Domaine Faiveley is one of the biggest in Burgundy and many consider it one of the best. Under the management of 7th generation Erwan Faiveley and Bernard Hervet as Managing Director, there has been a considerable investment in expanding the domaine’s vineyard holdings, including plots in Pommard, Volnay, Monthélie, Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet and Meursault. Many of Faiveley's top cuvées are bottled by hand with no filtration, resulting in clean, luxurious wines that showcase the best of Pinot Noir. Their concentration and richness are difficult to rival.

Critics Ratings

‘Deeply colored with only a touch of bricking. The expressive and gorgeously complex and spicy nose has gone almost exclusively secondary and there is a touch of sous-bois lurking in the background. The sleek, intense and powerful yet relatively refined big-bodied flavors flash prominent minerality on the superbly long and equally complex finish. I was seriously impressed with how well this showed and while for my taste it has peaked, it should hold gracefully for years to come.’ - Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 95/100 (May 2018)
