Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 93
Wine Spectator
A focused beam, this white wraps its lime, mineral, apple and vanilla notes around a core of bracing acidity. Has intensity and balance, yet this is firm and crisp on the finish for now, with real stony length. Best from 2010 through 2030. 400 cases imported.

Bonneau du Martray, France
In a region renowned for producing some of the greatest wines in the world, Bonneau du Martray is one of only a few estates in all of Burgundy to produce solely Grand Cru wines. For over twelve centuries, this family-run estate remains a true rarity as the single largest holding in the extraordinary white wine appellation of Corton-Charlemagne. In 1994, Jean-Charles le Bault de la Morinière left his career in architecture to manage his family’s 11 ha property. His attention to detail and pursuit of perfection has helped to grow the estate’s already exceptional reputation. Its vineyards lie on the choicest hillside terroir along a contiguous block stretching between En Charlemagne and reaching towards Aloxe-Corton. The domaine’s 9.5 hectares of Charlemagne are planted high on the hillside, where the soil contains more clay than limestone and is more suitable for white grapes. The average age of the vines is around 45 years and yields are kept very low. The domaine is unique in its west and southwest-facing orientation, which guarantees long, slow maturation of the grapes. Unlike his father, Jean-Charles follows a hands-off approach to viticulture and winemaking that includes organic and biodynamic farming practices. In the vineyard, Jean-Charles has improved drainage and terracing, reduced compaction of the soil and plans to plant new sélection massale cuttings in order to preserve the patrimony of his vines for future generations. Herbicides and fertilizers are never used, and all grapes are picked manually.

A legendary wine region setting the benchmark for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay worldwide, Burgundy is a perennial favorite of many wine lovers. While the concept of ‘terroir’ reigns supreme here—soil type, elevation and angle of each slope—this is a region firmly rooted in tradition. Because of the Napoleonic Code requiring equal distribution of property and land among all heirs, vineyard ownership in Burgundy is extremely fragmented, with some growers responsible for just one or two rows of vines. This system has led to the predominance of the "negociant"—a merchant who purchases fruit from many different growers to vinify and bottle together.

Burgundy’s cool, continental climate and Jurassic limestone soils are perfect for the production of elegant, savory and mineral-driven Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with plenty of acidity. Vintage variation is of particular importance here, as weather conditions can be variable and unpredictable. In some years spring frost and hail must be overcome.

The Côte d’Or, a long and narrow escarpment, forms the heart of the region, split into the Côte de Nuits to the north and the Côte de Beaune to the south. The former is home to many of the world’s finest Pinot Noir wines, while Chardonnay plays a much more prominent role in the latter, though outstanding red and white are produced throughout. Other key appellations include the Côte Chalonnaise, home to great value Pinot Noir and sparkling Crémant de Bourgogne. The Mâconnais produces soft and round, value-driven Chardonnay while Chablis, the northernmost region of Burgundy, is a paradise for any lover of bright, acid-driven and often age-worthy versions of the grape.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
