    September 27, 2014 - The rare no premox bottle … steely nose with crispness and hits of cantaloupe and peach. Mineral finish.

    May 24, 2014 - Fruit driven in the beginning. Later it opened up and expressed more earth and nut aromas. Some notes of barrels. Elegant style.

    January 11, 2014 - My last of a 4 pack. Decided to go with this based on the '99 pre-mod issues with BdM. I got lucky as all 4 bottles were delicious and not advanced.. It's a shame as this is a classy wine with clear breed. Very light pale straw with green tinge. Citrus and crushed flowers. Beautiful but years away from maturity.

    (Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne) Bright canary yellow color; almond, fresh macadamia nut, apple nose; tasty, oily textured, poised, youthful, stony, tart citrus, almond and mineral palate; medium-plus finish 93+ pts. (it's wonderful to taste a good sample like this, after having tasted such a badly oxidized bottle last year)

    (Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne) White pepper and banana battle brown butter and Asian pear. On the palate, the wine is full of dense mushroom and earthy pear flavors.
