"Clos des Cortons Faiveley" Grand Cru,
our Domaine's flagship Monopole

The jewels of the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune

Long-established in the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges, in the heart of Bourgogne, Domaine Faiveley has gradually grown to cover the most exceptional 'climats' of the Côte d'Or.

The jewels of the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune

The first parcels purchased by the Faiveley family in the mid-19th century are situated in the most renowned areas of Nuits-Saint-Georges.

The Domaine has expanded over the years to cover the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune in prestigious appellations such as Gevrey-Chambertin, Clos-de-Vougeot, Pommard, Volnay, Puligny-Montrachet and Corton-Charlemagne.

Domaine Faiveley currently owns 12 hectares of Grand Cru vineyards and 27 hectares of Premier Crus, three of which are 'monopole': Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru 'Clos des Issarts', Beaune Premier Cru 'Clos de l'Ecu' and the iconic Corton Grand Cru 'Clos des Cortons Faiveley'.

The average surface area of each appellation is around 1 hectare at Domaine Faiveley. This is extremely noteworthy in Bourgogne, a region that counts over 1200 different climats. The volume produced of each wine is therefore relatively limited and this precision enables us to further appreciate the tasting experience.

'Clos des Cortons Faiveley' Grand Cru,
our Domaine's flagship Monopole

The Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley is our family domaine's flagship Monopole vineyard and a unique treasure in the landscape of Burgundy's Grands Crus.

There is no point looking for the Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley on a map as you won't find it. It forms a part of the Le Rognet et Corton lieu-dit.

On the 3 March 1874, Joseph Faiveley purchased a 3-hectare Monopole parcel: the 'Clos des Cortons'. The sales deeds makes reference to the name 'Clos des Cortons', the name under which the wine was sold up until 1929.
In April 1929, the President of the Syndicat de Corton brought the matter before the courts as he believed that the name 'Clos des Cortons' had been usurped. On the 25 June 1930, the Dijon Court of First Instance ruled that, in order to avoid confusion with other Corton parcels, the name 'Clos des Cortons' must from then on be followed by the name 'Faiveley'. Our Family were delighted by this ruling which was later upheld in 1931 by the Dijon Court of Appeal.

As a result, the 'Clos des Cortons Faiveley' was approved by the Civil Division of the Court of Cassation on the 23 November 1937. The name 'Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley' is therefore not a commercial brand but rather a judicial decision of legal and obligatory nature.

The Corton Grand Cru 'Clos des Cortons Faiveley' Monopole is full-bodied and concentrated and is the domaine's flagship wine. It offers excellent potential for bottle age and will entice you with its strength, elegance and aromatic persistency.
