Impressive nose, classical Charlemagne, chiselled and stony, no sign of oak, no over ripe fruit. Absolutely dances yet with such an impressive intensity, the ripeness of fruit is perfectly judged, Magical balance, intensity and persistence. Great job!

(93 - 95 points) Bursting from the glass with aromas of citrus oil, fresh pear, dried flowers, toasted nuts and fresh pastry, Faiveley's 2018 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is medium to full-bodied, lively and incisive...   (93 - 95 points) Bursting from the glass with aromas of citrus oil, fresh pear, dried flowers, toasted nuts and fresh pastry, Faiveley's 2018 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is medium to full-bodied, lively and incisive, with good concentration and chalky structuring extract, concluding with a long, precise and mineral finish.- WK

(91-94 points) A ripe if restrained nose consists of citrus peel, green apple, floral and spice scents, all of which is trimmed in just enough wood to mention.

There is a bit more volume to the rich, powerful and nicely delineated flavors that are less refined but more mineral-driven and particularly so on the impressively long finish where the only reproach is a touch of warmth.

The Faiveley team began to pick on August 27th; here, the assemblage of the young vines from the top of the Clos des Cortons with the older fruit has given a rich, dense wine with notes of ripe apple, butter, and hazlenut along with a bit of spice from the wood. The texture on the palate is dense but not heavy, and the final balance leads to a pleasantly lingering finish.
