Tasting Notes

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.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (79), June 2020

The 2018 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has much more delineation and complexity than the 2018 Champ-Gain, and I might actually prefer the aromatics here to the 2019. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, taut and crisp, displaying fine salinity on the finish and a hint of brioche and white chocolate on the aftertaste. Enjoy over the next decade.

Neal Martin, vinous.com, December 2020

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.
