    February 18, 2016 - Big Bottle Night Dinner for 16 people: a 3L of 2012 Chappellet Signature Reserve, followed by 1.5 L bottles of : 1992 Bonneau du Martray Corton-Chalegmagne, 2009 Domaine La Roquete and 2004 The Colonial Estate Shiraz Exile. All were opened and allowed to breath in the bottle for at least 45 minutes. The Chappellet was decanted.

    Our entire group enjoyed this. It was the highlight of the night. It was rich, floral, and had notes of apple and apricot.

    October 25, 2015 - Bonneau du Martray Dinner with Jean-Charles le Bault de la Morinière (RPM Italian - Chicago IL): This seems to keep improving with more time in the cellar. Floral and spice driven intensity with moderately mature orchard fruit. Rich and powerful consistency.

    September 20, 2015 - The nose was fresh with white peach and preserved lemon fruits. There’s a dollop of butter and a light toastiness to the wine. In the mouth it is full and rich and it still has the vineyards tremendous posture. There’s a torrent of minerals rolling around the mouth after the wine is swallowed.

    August 3, 2015 - you won't believe this, took to venerable Napa resort (which will remain unnamed), left two bottles of wine - including this bottle - with them for decanting, when we got there they said it had been dumped down the drain by accident, soooo sad - they were very nice about it, bought our $300 dinner for us, but very disappointed not to be able to try this wine

    July 5, 2015 - Corton-Charlemagne & Corton Dinner (Imperial Treasure Shanghai, Ngee Ann City, Singapore): An ageless beauty – this was a superb example of how well great white Burgundy can keep in the bottle. It had a beautiful nose, with a bit of cream, a little mushroomy earthiness, a lovely blush of yellow fruit, and then a nice streak of minerality, all edged with in a subtly toasty, nutty, caramelly note. Lovely stuff. The palate had a beautiful, ringing clarity to it, with crystal pure, but still subtle tones of white peach and apple flesh laced with lovely clean lines of stony mineral. There was girth, there some power, both speaking of the terroir and the vintage, but this was ever so clean and focused and elegant, I would even say restrained – just beautiful. At the finish, a little stream of almost Chablisienne minerality and a blush of lovely warm spice cut through some of the sweet fruit as the wine trailed away in a beautifully long tail. This was a wine of great finesse. On one hand, it seemed to be drinking at a wonderful peak, but on the other, it also seemed really ageless, feeling like it could probably just float along like that forever. Served blind, no one could tell this was 10 to 20 years older than the other wines in its flight. Truly excellent.

Burgundy-Report

    (Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne) Medium gold. The nose doesn't have the depth of the Roumier but shows a wider horizon of creamy citrus fruit and a faint, high-toned soapy note. The palate, just like the nose doesn't show the depth of the Roumier wine, but there's a wider range of creamy fruit driven flavours - super length too. I like fruit - so I personally prefer this wine - despite it probably not being the 'better wine'. Held up well in the glass - solid as a rock 2 hours later.
