    September 20, 2017 - Finally one of these that I can enjoy since it is old enough to have emerged from behind the mountains of sulphur and oak used here. A pale, very chiseled and "clean as a whistle" wine; great minerality and focus but prefer a CC style with more dimension and complexity.

    May 20, 2017 - Nose was clean and pure, elegant and understated with a big bouquet of white lilies, but with a distinctly Corton golden ripeness. Honeysuckle was a common note. Banana cream and vanilla. On the palate this was impressively soft, imparting rich mouth-coating flavours with little weight. Acid tied this palate together with a precise mineral close. Was really impressed with this. Made for a lovely drink tonight but can see this lasting a while.

    September 19, 2016 - Yearly tasting event with Jean Luc Pépin from Domaine Comte George de Vogüé and Swedish importer hosting and presenting the wines from the about to be released vintage (2014) from Bonneau de Martray and Comte George de Vogüé (with some reference older vintages served to compare).
    This is always a personal highlight tasting event.
    Had a number of bottles of this wine, and I believe there is quite a bit of bottle variation.
    This is one of the less good bottles, that even showed some signs of oxidation.
    Nose with hay, almonds and marzipan, a touch of dry sherry and slightly oxidized tones.
    Palate behaved more mature than it should, nuts and almonds, some butter, wet hay, some sweetness.
    A complex but somewhat dirty and oxidized overall impression, lacking fruit and acidity.
    Not a completely flawed wine in anyway, but nor a 100% correct bottle. (Compared with others I have had)
    I had a fantastic bottle of this a year ago, and this is far from as good as that bottle showed.
    So my conclusion are signs of premox in this one, but also that there are good bottles out there.

    July 9, 2016 - Nice wines; 7/8/2016-7/9/2016 (Geelong VIC): The most impressive element of this wine was it's apparent lack of maturity. Would have said this was less than five years old if I'd had it blind. Lovely nose, honey blossom and chalky complexity. The palate was good too but maybe lacked a bit of concentration and was a bit phenolic on the finish. An enjoyable wine but the 08 showed that this domaine has really stepped it up a gear in more recent times. This bottle showed what a tragedy it is that so many white burgundies don't go the distance because of premox.

    June 11, 2016 - Bright gold. Sulphur, oak, vanilla with some pear, lime and green apple. Very simple wine, quite one dimensional on the palate, some yellow fruit, some acid, but that's about it. Perhaps I didn't give it more time in the glass, but at a snapshot, nothing interesting.

    (Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne) Same colour as 2000. The wine shows a blast of fruit on the nose. The steely palate is much more mineral than the 2000 and seems to show an extra length despite less-than piercing acidity. Very drinkable today, in fact it's a bit of a honey.
