Bonneau du Martray Visit and Tasting (Pernand-Vergelesses): Tasting at the domaine. Intensely floral start with subtle orchard fruit aromas. Restrained fruit start-to-finish with intense power and concentration with a a slightly backward character for now. Perhaps the best potential of all vintages tasted today, from 2019 or 2020 forward.
Corton Masterclass with James Handford MW (Handford Wines, London): Light yellow, gold in colour, slight greenish tint. Just a fine touch of oak and it's not really evident, well integrated oak. Round but with good acidity and thus structure. Approachable even this young and was the favourite of the whites of the tasting. Touch of green apple, mineral and with good balance. 92-93 and this is one to keep for another 10years as it will be a 95 sort of wine.
beautiful notes of white flowers, white peach and honeysuckle. Great depth and elegance with fine minerality. Opened up after an hour. Big flavor. Certainly will age nicely. Tasting great but needs a few years of bottle age to show its real stuff.
