My Notes:

About Bonneau du Martray:

Family owned for nearly two centuries, the vineyard Bonneau du Martray is located on the hill of Corton, inside the area of origin of the appellation Corton-Charlemagne. It is the largest entity, and includes the famous hill area already known to the Carolingian period.

Thus, the area devoted exclusively to the development of two Grand Crus: the Corton-Charlemagne, Which is its flagship wine and the Corton.

Its production, resulting from old vines planting carefully selected and controlled performance is the result of work whose quality is recognized by leading critics and connoisseurs. The care and attention that is paid to both the vineyard and the cellar have earned a global reputation and presence on the largest tables.
