    The 2016 Corton le Rognet Grand Cru has a wonderful, vibrant bouquet with perfumed wild strawberry and raspberry preserve aromas, wilted rose petals and just a hint of sous bois. This is very detailed and precise. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin on the entry, but the concentration is delivered on the back palate---a firm grip, this Corton becoming more and more masculine toward the finish and then quite saline on the aftertaste. Excellent.

  • 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.
