92-94 Pts Antonio Galloni - Vinous
"The 2009 Corton is super-impressive. It shows a fabulous combination of ripeness and structure buttressed by persistent saline notes that frame the fruit all the way through to the finish. The textural brilliance of the fruit is impossible to miss in this impeccable, totally polished Corton. I am not sure the 2009 will make old-bones, but it is sure to provide thrilling drinking along the way. Tasted from tank. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029."
94 Pts Allen Meadows - Burghound
"A very ripe but attractively fresh nose features liqueur-like aromas of black cherry, cassis, violet and plum that are nuanced by hints of earth and game. The very rich, full and velvet-textured flavors possess an abundance of dry extract that confers a seductive mouth feel onto the robust and ever-so-mildly rustic finish that is at once long, serious and moderately austere. This well-balanced effort should age well for many years and note that an abundance of patience will be required."
The leading producer of Corton Charlemagne also makes a stunning red! This highly limited and rare offer is a must own for Burgundy lovers!
Bonneau du Martray is an amazing historical producer best known for their Corton Charlemagne, but they also own a tiny amount of Pinot vines, and make a stunning Corton Rouge as well! This small production wine averages about 500 cases a year, so also highly collectable as well!
The 2009 vintage was an incredible vintage for Pinot Noir, and of all the villages, Corton thrived the most from the warm growing season. This is a can't miss offer if you love Grand Cru Burgundy!
"The Bonneau du Martray family descends directly from Chancellor Nicholas Rolin, one of Burgundy's most illustrious personages, who founded and lavishly endowed the Hospices de Beaune in 1443.
The origins of Domaine Bonneau du Martray are most likely to be found in the ventes des biens nationaux, the auctions of Church property following their confiscation during the French Revolution. The Very family is thought to have purchased at one of the auctions part of the 'Charlemagne' vineyard. In over 1000 years, this was the third time only 'Charlemagne' had changed hands. In 1835 Charles Bonneau du Martray, an important landowner from the Morvan, married Eugenie Very, whose dowry included 24 hectares of vineyards in Pernand, Aloxe and Volnay.
Bonneau du Martray is with Domaine de la Romanee-Conti the only domaine in Burgundy to make only grand cru (DRC's Duvault-Blochet is declassified grand cru). There are 11 contiguous hectares, a rarity in Burgundy, 1.5 of which are planted to pinot noir and 9.5 to chardonnay, making Bonneau du Martray not only the largest single owner of Corton-Charlemagne. All the vines, whether chardonnay or pinot, are situated in the two âCharlemagne' lieux-dits, En Charlemagne in Pernand, and Le Charlemagne in Aloxe. The hill of Corton is particularly steep, and erosion is a constant worry.
Indeed, Bonneau du Martray makes only two wines, one of them in a quantity large enough that experimentation would pose a limited risk. Jean-Charles' ensuing experimentation, however, was hardly limited. One third of the domaine, he thought, would amount to a meaningful rational experiment and so a third of the domaine was what he converted to biodynamics. To guarantee a fully rational experiment, a comparison that would make sense, parcels were chosen that would offer halves comprised of identical vine ages and genetic material. Then, of course, the grapes from each half parcel were vinified separately." - Importer
