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 AdvocateTasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Corton Clos des Cortons from Faiveley has a very elegant and pure bouquet that expresses more essence of pinoté than others. There is a candied quality to the aromatics, perhaps even a playfulness. The palate is well balanced and supple in the mouth, perhaps the oak a little too strong towards the finish. This is a Corton that seemingly wants to exude finesse, but in order for that to happen, the imprint of the winemaking needs to ebb away. My score is based on the opinion that it will.

Wine SpectatorPlenty of resinous oak coats this red, leaving a veneer on the cherry and berry flavors. Compact, with a layer of dusty tannins on the finish. With air, the oak subsides, revealing pretty cherry, floral and spice notes, making this more elegant. Best from 2019 through 2033. 1,315 cases made.
