    October 7, 2017 - Always afraid when opening the Charlemagnes from this producer, I have had so many pre-oxidized examples. This is just perfect, having reached a perfect plateau of maturity. Aromas of lime, citrus, nuts and minerals with hints of oil and dry wood. Full bodied, high acidity, lots of sweet citrus, minerals, oil and nuts. Incredibly long aftertaste. Extremely young for a 12 year old wine.

    July 2, 2017 - There's an oaky old acacia character that has some similarity to a corked wine, but this bottle certainly wasn't corked. To paraphrase an excellent note from another contributor 'Lemon zest and mineral spice, hint of crushed herbs. Coiled power, beautiful structure. Lemon and limes, jasmine and honeysuckle, hint of roast almonds.' Huge length on the finish.

    May 27, 2017 - Corked.
    But the colour was great, and if you could look past the wet cardboard aromas, the underlying material was good.

    March 31, 2017 - In excellent condition, pale straw.
    Lemon zest and mineral spice, hint of crushed herbs.
    Lightly dances but with coiled power, beautiful structure. Very youthful. Lemon and limes, jasmine and honeysuckle, hint of roast almonds. Very refined acidity and long refined finish. Special.

    March 18, 2017 - I would drink up , this wine was taking on a fair amount of secondary flavors. I wouldn't go any further than saying this wine was good . It did benefit from some air , but not much . Disappointing , waited too long on this one .

    (Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne) Very pale. Well-integrated oak notes and plenty of depth on the clean nose. Soft, concentrated and with lovely depth. There are no fireworks but tons of restrained interest. Worth the price of entry…
