Winemaker's Notes

Wine Spectator's 2005 Top 100 Wines!

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. 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."
-Wine Advocate 92-94 Points
