    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.

    July 28, 2016 - Corton-Charlemagne at the Lieu-dit Cru Annual(ish) Blind White Dinner (The Bristol - Chicago IL): Served blind in flight, this was easy to identify as older than the others. Ripe and powerful. i found this endearingly mature, while others found it a little too advanced vs the younger wines in the flight.

    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.

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.
