Wine Description

Domaine Bonneau du Martray, on the hillside of the village of Pernand-Vergelesses, is a continuous vineyard of 27 acres, unusual in Burgundy. In a word, elegance. The effects of the terroir combined with restrained use of oak result in very long-lived wines that marry superbly with food. Ideally they need a few years bottle age to allow the very complex flavors to bloom.

In a word, elegance. The effects of the terroir combined with restrained use of oak result in very long-lived wines that marry superbly with food. Ideally they need a few years bottle age to allow the very complex flavors to bloom. Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne, a wine of extraordinary richness and aging potential, only begins to shows its true colors after 6-10 years. Boasting terrific aromatic richness, the white flower and ripe apple-scented 2002 Corton-Charlemagne has awesome depth, gorgeous balance, and is impressively refined. Copious quantities of spiced minerals are intermingled with white fruits in its intense, fresh, concentrated core. This light to medium-bodied wine is not a blockbuster, yet I’d rather dine with Audrey Hepburn than Anna Nicole Smith. (hide)

Expert Reviews
  • Wine Spectator
    "Shows fine density, even a slight astringency. Ripe apple and peach flavors are rich and persistent, with vanilla and mineral notes emerging on the finish. The long, expansive finish reveals its potential. Best from 2008 through 2018. 4,000 cases made."
