In his latest review on Burghound.com, Allen Meadows tasted several Domaine Faiveley wines from the 2013 vintage. He has included in his selection the Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, which was awarded 92-94/100, as well as the Musigny Grand Cru which scored 95-98/100.
Meadows described the 2013 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru:
“An outstanding richness and and a very rounded and suave medium weight plus flavors that possess an abundance of dry extract that both coats the palate and buffers the moderately firm acid spine on the mineral-driven, saline and notably more persistent finish. This is more obviously structured and will need a few more years of cellar time to fully realize its considerable potential.”
And the 2013 Musigny Grand Cru:
“A very pungent nose displays plenty of wood and menthol influences. There is superb richness and intensity to the seductively textured mineral-inflected flavours that are at once powerful yet refined before culminating a very concentrated and stunningly long finish that just goes on and on. This is exceptionally promising and should also live for decades. In a word, brilliant.”
