BONNEAU DU MARTRAY 2014
Offered APR 11th, 2017
A family property for nearly two centuries, the vineyards of Bonneau du Martray lie on the hillside at the heart of Corton Charlemagne. The domaine owns the most important holdings in the whole appellation and produces two very special grand crus: Corton-Charlemagne (their signature wine) and Corton (a red interpretation of their emblematic wine). These wines are meticulously made, from specially selected old vines that produce incredibly small yields to scrupulous attention in the cellar. These are wines that have a global following and a reputation of being featured on some of the greatest restaurant wine lists.

95 points Vinous: “Very sexy aromas of apple, wild herbs, spices and soil. Boasts outstanding breadth and sweetness, with lovely savory complexity to the flavors of medicinal herbs, citrus fruits and powdered stone. Really superb tension in the mouth here. The echoing, building finish conveys an impression of outstanding density and a strong saline character. Showing spectacularly today but it’s hard to believe that this wine won’t shut down in bottle at some point.”
