Nicolas Faure Aloxe-Corton 2019

#1 Post by Adrian Huntington »

Did any Nicholas Faure Aloxe-Corton 2019 come to the US market? I found the Domaine Nicolas Faure Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Herbues 2019 along with the Aligote, but I really want a bottle of the Aloxe-Corton.

Didn’t know production was so low for the Aloxe Corton. Thanks!

I was told by Paul Wasserman that Veritas got it. I guess I missed out in purchasing it in the California market.

Hey Adrian,

It came to the US, but very little. Even Flatiron who gets the most as a DI only allocated a very select few and it never went on the site.

There is not 50 bottles made. That is almost not even possible to make wine... 1. you'd need a custom barrel and 2. there would be nothing to top up with and could very easily have microbial growth especially as he used very little Sulphur. I can check on the bottle this week but I believe it was 500-600.
