Wine Spectator
A big wine built in an elegant style. Plenty of smoke, oak and fireworks, with charred notes, but enough ripe, sweet black and red fruit to balance this spicy Pinot Noir of excellent quality. A success for '00.

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.

Red Wine

View all products

Celebrated as some of the best wine in the universe, red wine from Burgundy, otherwise known as red Burgundy, is Pinot noir. In fact Burgundy is the birthplace of Pinot noir and the source of the planet’s most sensual, delicate, valuable and sought-after Pinot noir wines.

Understanding and enjoying red Burgundy can stay simple, with a basic knowledge of its subregions, become more intricate by dialing down to the villages and vineyards or become a life-long passion, exploring climats (plots of vines), vintages and the post French Revolution land ownership laws. In any case, a fine red Burgundy will display refined nuances of black currant, red fruit, earth, spice, alluring floral aromatics and have great elegance, complexity and longevity.

Most famous, praised and collected of Burgunday are those from the Côte d'Or. Hundreds of millions of years ago, the area now called Côte d'Or was under a warm ocean whose sea floor has, over time, shifted and decomposed into various layers of limestone, sandstone and clay interspersed with ancient fossilized sea creatures. This is what is referred to as the famous escarpment upon which all of the highly sought-after Grands Crus and Premiers Crus vineyards can be found. In other words, from north to south, the best vineyards of Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée, Flagey-Echezeaux, Nuits-St-Georges, Aloxe-Corton, Pommard and Volnay follow the path of this ancient sea bed.
