    June 8, 2014 - Kind of a disappointment. Not showing the chiseled definition that I love about Corton Charlemagne or the 1993 vintage in general. Instead, it's in a fat, rich, brassy style, and showing its age.

    October 23, 2013 - Tasted 2 bottles at the McLaren Vale Wine Show Judges dinner 2013 generously shared by Dave "The Roadie" Brookes. One was just stunning, tightly coiled with years ahead of it, the other still good but more honey spectrum, nuts. Both from BDM cellar release. From a so-called lesser vintage.

    June 4, 2012 - In a good place right now -- classic, acid-driven, brisk.

    May 4, 2012 - Youngish looking – similar taste, structured and long, very fine fruit, stone, lime. Less development than a previous bottle.

    April 17, 2012 - copper coloured with rim face and considerable tearing. The wine has pronounced aromas of marzipan, honey - almost truffled honey and cheese, nuts funky hazelnuts over slight apricot also some cheesy mushroom notes here as well. In the mouth the wine has medium plus acidity, marzipan slight spicy and citric tang, barley sugar, lacks fruit, some cream here. medium length. Lovely nose but tired and old palate

    (Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne) Relatively pale colour. The nose is open and high toned, quite pure. The palate shows a lovely blend of fat and acidity surrounding a super core of concentrated young fruit. Very long too. This will be a wonderful wine, but should still wait.
