    September 5, 2017 - Drank alongside the 89. This was decidedly more rich and honeyed than the 89. This also could age effortlessly for a decade but it was such a contrast between the two wines. This also showed some honey and botrytis. As the night wore on, it shared more characteristics with the 92 Raveneau Clos than it did with the 89 Bonneau du Martray Corton Charlemagne.

    July 30, 2017 - Kelly’s 61st - Champ, Monfortino, Burgundy and a ringer ('14 Summum) (The Grill Room at the Rosewood DC): Beautiful intense bright yellow color which is very promising. Exquisite fully mature Burgundy nose that we all love, decadent yellow fruit, lemon curd, yellow peach, light caramel, lanoline, limestone and a hint of creme brulee. Gorgeous fully integrated palate, ripe orchard fruit and crème brulee, slightly lacking acidity which is typical of the 92, good mineral presence and a lovely long delicious yellow fruit driven finish. With a half hour of air, the nose becomes very mineral a la wet stone. The nose reminds Eric, Ravneau and I agree wholeheartedly. The palate however remains reach and ever so slightly flat. The nose constantly changes back and forth from Chablis like mineral to decadent yellow fruit. However, the palate remains constant. Slightly lacking acidity keeps the wine from flirting with perfection.

    November 4, 2016 - 2016 Villa d’Este Wine Symposium - Kelly, Alan and Kevin's excellent adventure; 11/3/2016-11/12/2016 (Villa D’este, Lake Como, Piedmont, Milan and Frankfurt): Beautiful fully mature nose, ripe yellow fruit, a hint of burnt sugar, toasty smoke, light caramel and steel. Fully integrated palate, slightly low on acidity but more than enough mineral to maintain the balance. This is a really nice fully mature Burgundy. Towards the end of the peak so need to be drunk up.

    September 24, 2016 - I have been very lucky having purchased two separate lots of this wine, every one of them so far have been pristine. Unheard of in today's white burgundy. The wine was crystalline. Rich yet restrained. Loads of mineral front to back supported by perfectly ripe fruit. After 3 hours the wine was not going to back down rather it evolved greater complexity and weight. A wine like this is the perfect tee shot that brings you back after 100 hooks and shanks.

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.
