  • An exotic rendition of Corton that bursts with tropical fruit aromas and flavours. There’s guava, mango and rockmelon. You get a bit of lavender, honey and dried apricot from the botrytis. It if full and voluminous with a sappy mouthfeel and for all the riot of flavour the wine possesses excellent posture and has a fresh and inviting finish.

  • Tasted blind, this wine had a medium yellow center and clear rims. The medium+ intensity nose showed citrus, egg custard, apples, and white stone.

    In the mouth, this wine was medium bodied with nice richness and impressive acidity. It even came off as still a bit young!

    This was another impressive bottle. Could it even get better? In any event, well stored bottles will easily last another 10 years.

  • I have had many bottles of this beauty over the years but none better than this one. It was a bottle recently acquired direct from the Domaine. The cork was in so tight I nearly tore my bicep off the bone trying to get it out. It poured out glistening with green hues. It had some restrained tropical notes along with a little butter, apricot and lavender. It was full and rich with preserved lemon flavour and still the steely line of Corton. It had so much drive, poise and length. Near perfect white Burg.

  • This was my third or fourth time with this wine, which was always incredibly brilliant in the past. On the nose, this was just wonderful, with all sorts of umami and beef broth notes, mushrooms, nuttiness, but still some fruit. It was a bit flat on the palate initially, and not up to the level of prior bottles, but it kept picking up vitality as it got air. Probably the worst of the bottles of this I've tried, but still an excellent wine.

  • This bottle was from the same batch as the others. It had a somewhat lower fill and a slightly loose cork. However, the color was similar to the others with a deep yellow center and clear rims.

    I thought this bottle might be flawed when it was first poured. After two hours of air the medium+ intensity nose was blasting lemons, coconut, apples, and almond paste. It was surprisingly exotic.

    It the mouth, this wine was riper, and slightly more mono-toned, than other bottles. However, it also had searing acidity and great length.

    This wine will easily last 10+ years. Different but entertaining.

    (Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne) From magnum. Bright golden colour. The nose shows complex notes that include honey and lanolin. A model of freshness and power the palate has engrossing complexity and a special 'extra' dimension on the finish. Real class.
