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)"
