2000 Bonneau du Martray, Corton-CharlemagneDec. 2010
The first whiff is of an oak-based toasty bread, below is a very faint baked citrus note. Very mineral, very lovely width, and even a hint of plush-ness. There is a good mid-palate intensity that intersperses lots of complexity – a faint creamy brûlée lingers in the mouth, and for quite some time. Very good length and complexity, yet, an understated, underdeveloped wine. It is possible to get more enjoyment from a bourgogne today, but with much less to contemplate. The potential for excellent if it avoids too many radicals…
2008 Bonneau du Martray, Corton-CharlemagneDec. 2010
Hint of sulfur. Deep fruit aromas, riper than 2009, Wide with lots of energy in the mouth – the acidity seems perfectly dissolved in the whole. Flavour leaches from your gums, plenty of it mineral – the finish is long and narrowing. Very fine.
2003 Bonneau du Martray, Corton-CharlemagneDec. 2010
A ripe but still quite mineral nose. Full on the palate – clearly there’s no raging torrent of acidity but this is nicely mouth-watering – and not just as an afterthought. There is density and real authority to the mid-palate flavours, would make a great match to many dishhes at table. This has no sharp edges at all – this balance indicates no rush to drink.
2002 Bonneau du Martray, Corton-CharlemagneDec. 2010
Wide and fresh aromatics with just a hint of herbs. There is lovely width, intensity and energy too – quite a silky texture. There is super mid-palate flavour. Yum.
2001 Bonneau du Martray, Corton-CharlemagneDec. 2010
The nose is wide and populated with seemingly ‘soft aromas’. Again, in the mouth there is width and certainly a softer packaging than the 2002 vintage. The acidity is the undercurrent that brings this together as a whole.
2008 Bonneau du Martray, CortonDec. 2010
There is a lovely, vibrant colour here. More depth and density than the ‘in progress’ 2009 – lovely precise red fruits. Wider and less plush than the 09 – good acidity and energy – I find this long and very understated. A good wine.
2009 Bonneau du Martray, CortonDec. 2010
Beautiful, medium-plus colour. There’s a nice floral top-note – delicatesse with a hint of mineral. There’s plenty of slightly grainy tannin, excellent acidity – a beautifully fresh and very, very pretty wine.
