The Burgundy Pyramid

Making sense of the complexity of the complexity of Burgundy isn’t easy.

Though Burgundy only comprises 5% of France’s vineyard area, it holds 100 different Appellations, 25% of the entire French total.  There are no less than 5,000 growers, 85% of whom own less than 10 hectares, and four fifths of them make wine.

Faiveley, Corton, Clos des Cortons Faiveley, Grand Cru 2017

" Cask sample. Mid cherry red. Smells ripe and sweet and generous in its red fruit. A touch peppery. Gorgeous harmony between ripe, fresh, generous fruit and well-modulated structure. Succulent, fine, mildly chewy and seems remarkably accessible even now. Very, very long. 18/20, drink 2027-2040" Julia Harding MW on jancisrobinson.com tasted 13th November 2018.

The story of how the Domaine Faiveley managed to add their name to a grand cru is rather ironic. The president of the Corton syndicate was unhappy with the name Clos des Cortons, solely owned by Faiveley since 1864. He thought that it made it sound like Faiveley owned the whole of Corton Grand Cru so he brought the matter to justice. The court settled it in 1930 by adding the surname Faiveley to it, much to the joy of the family. From new barrel. Glorious red fruit, sweet and slightly gamey. Dense texture and very ripe fruit, delivering drama without compromising on elegance. Beautiful. 2024-2034
