94-96 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Mingling deep fruit tones evocative of red cherries and plums with notions of loamy soil, licorice, orange rind, rose petals and sweet spices, the 2020 Corton Grand Cru Clos des Cortons Faiveley is full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, with terrific concentration, tangy acids and a long, saline finish. This is extremely promising. (Jan 2022)"

95 points Christy Canterbury, MW (TimAtkin.com): "This has a brash nose with minerals, North African spices, wild fruits and rose buds. Smooth on the attack, the palate continues the caressing feel with creamy tannins and light extract. This is a highly accessible and thoroughly refined Corton. This is found on the Ladoix side and within Corton Rognets GC. 2023-40."

93-95 points Jasper Morris, MW (Inside Burgundy): "One of the denser deeper darker colours here, and a somewhat brooding nose. There is power in this part of Corton. A miserly 20 hl/ha and 14% alcohol. Some sun-dried cherries alongside the ultra-ripe raspberry in this super-concentrated wine. A little whiff of vanillin behind. Long and substantial. (Nov 2021)"

92-94 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "Very ripe though again, attractively fresh aromas are comprised by notes of poached plum, cassis, the sauvage and a pretty spice nuances, especially anise. The supple and somewhat surprisingly, not especially dense flavors possess a caressing mouthfeel before terminating in a vibrant and sneaky long finish that firms up significantly as it sits on the palate. As always with this ageworthy wine, patience absolutely required. Drink: 2037+. (Jan 2022)"

91-93 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2020 Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru has quite a rich and outgoing bouquet, plenty of mulberry fruit here laced with touches of tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, quite ripe and slightly confit towards the finish, generous but let’s see how long-term it is. Drink: 2025-2045. (Dec 2021)"
