From mag. Beautiful poise. Soft lemony fruit, seasshells, slate. This has a wonderfully oily citrus poise in that midpalate with a great salinity and balance. Very good. Years ahead.

In 775 the Holy Roman Emperor, Charlemagne, bequeathed his ownership of the Hill of Corton to the Abbey of Saint-Andoche de Saulieu. Corton-Charlemagne is the only grand cru in Cote d'Or that faces west. Since 2008, when Romanée-Conti’s cuvée Duvault-Blochet changed to include 1er crus, Bonneau du Martray has been the only domaine in Burgundy to produce only grand cru. Opening with a perfumed and mouthwatering toasted sesame oil note that when you prompt yourself to think about what crushed rocks smell like, it instantly changes to it. Mindblown... Next up, imagine the combination of lime oil, juicy peach, and tangerine peel, and then imagine the ‘cream of’ that blend. Lastly, juxtapose that against the racy, minerality-filled finish, that’s really long on energy and focus. It could make a case for the most complex wine I’ve ever tasted, but certainly, Bonneau du Martray’s 2006 Corton-Charlemagne is the best white wine I’ve ever tasted.

vibrant, middle aged beautiful Corton. Medium weight with good acidity and mineral intensity. Balanced and delicious now. Have had bottles from this case that were pre-moxed but this wasn't one of them.

Bruised orchard fruits, moist chalk, toasted almonds....it's at a sweet spot, and is delicious with a whole roasted chicken.

Nice but lacking complexity and depth. A very respectable showing.
