Lovely smoky nose with real richness underneath. Charming breadth but no lack of tension. Not fat at all though very intense. Powerful and mineral. Opened five days ago. Apparently it tastes just the same. Very fresh and firm and with great spine.

This needs time to open up and I suspect will get only better with bottle time. Citrus, lemon curd, melon and white peach show thru. Acidity adds zing to the backbone and is offset nicely by slight creaminess. Good weight to the mouthfeel. Finishes with wonderful length and freshness.

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.
