  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 84

    Despite impressively rich earthy aromas, the fleshy texture and the modest flavors don't quite add up to greatness. Still, it's a nice wine that's drinkable now and ought to develop nicely over the next three years.

    Wonderfully complex, expressive and intense aged white burgundy aromas that still are completely fresh and pure if no longer primary lead to round, rich, powerful and extremely long flavors. There is really good depth here with the classic Corton-Charlemagne minerality and racy finishing acidity. While I would expect no further positive development, the balance is so good that this should easily hold for a number of years to come. Consistent notes.

  • 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.
