    June 24, 2017 - Musique & Vin Festival BYO Dinner with Musicians (1243 Bourgogne Society - Beaune): Small glass, brief note. Still nicely fresh but also slightly simple. From the same source as a much better bottle opened one year ago.

    April 22, 2017 - A tired bottle, well into its decline, but drinkable. 87-

    April 1, 2017 - A magnificent bottle. Complex, linear, detailed and engaging. It has pure white peach and citrus fruit. There’s a hint of toast and white mushroom development. It has a rigid mineral spine and terrific drive right through the palate. It finishes with mouthwatering acidity and length is superb.

    March 22, 2017 - Don't have notes. Just remember this was a great bottle. Super clean and balanced now but also seemed like it could keep aging for another 30 years.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Bonneau du Martray Corton Charlemagne) It is nice drinking white burgundy at its peak. This wine was just oozing with class and had a wonderful texture. Yellow fruits along with a waxey like flavor and texture. Like the softest pillow ever on your palate. Long detailed finish. Mature slightly baked fruit flavors and a nutty like palate impression and zingy minerality. Acidity was not high but also not super low . . .it was just right and perfectly integrated with the rest of the components. Balance is the key word here. Although this was was great cellaring white burgs is still a crapshoot due to oxidation issues.
