Reviews For This Wine


 
Burghound | 89

Intensely mineral nose with fine detail, minerality and fruit with a greenish edge followed by supremely elegant, intensely stony flavors and a solid acid spine. Though this does not offer grand cru volume in the mouth, the character is classic Corton-Charlemagne. This is on the ascendancy and while 2003 should see it begin to drink well, it should hold at this level for a number of years.

The 1993 Corton-Charlemagne reveals appealing honeysuckle and butterscotch aromas and a medium-bodied, softly textured personality. Caramel, nut cream, and anise flavors are interrupted by a lack of breadth in the mid-palate in this otherwise flavorful, long, and delicious wine.

Firm and elegant, with a solid, racy structure. Enticing smoke, spice, mineral and pear flavors turn to beautiful cream and mineral on the finish.

About This Producer


With vineyards donated by Emperor Charlemagne himself on the most desirable stretch of the Corton hill, Domain Bonneau Du Martray remains the largest single holding of the Charlemagne climate. It is the one and only domaine in Burgundy to produce exclusively Grand Cru wines and one of the finest white wine producers in the Cote D'Or. The estate's ownership has only changed hands three times since 775 with the current proprietor, Jean-Charles le Bault de la Monriere, taking over for his father in 1994.

The unique feature of the 9.5-hectare contiguous block of land is the orientation of the vines. Facing west and southwest at their altitude, the growing season is longer, which lends the wines greater complexity. As well as crafting perhaps Burgundy's most majestic Corton-Charlemagne, Bonneau Du Martray also produces a small amount of Grand Cru red Corton.
