Lot 508

Corton-Charlemagne, 2005
2 (1 x 2) 750ml
Domaine Bonneau du Martray is considered to be one of the most prestigious estates in Corton Charlemagne. It had been in the same family for over 200 years until its recent sale to American, Stan Kroenke, who is the owner of Screaming Eagle wine estate in Napa Valley, as well as majority shareholder of Arsenal football club. The rare west-facing vineyards can be dated back to the eighth century, and Bonneau du Martray is the only estate in Burgundy to exclusively produce wine from Grand cru vineyards.

‘A ripe and classic nose of distinctly discreet and reserved green fruit and floral aromas that are airy, pure and lightly spiced merge into intense, precise and penetrating medium full flavors blessed with terrific acid/fruit balance and huge length. This is really a lovely wine that is presently a tightly coiled spring and in need of extended bottle aging to really put on display the superb potential here. An understated stunner of a wine as well as ultra refined and one of the best examples of this appellation in 2005.’ – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 95/100 (2008)

A ripe and slightly phenolic (think olive oil) nose is composed of mostly green fruit and floral aromas that are airy, pure and lightly spiced. There is fine intensity to the rich yet precise and penetrating medium full flavors that are blessed with terrific acid/fruit balance and huge length. This is really a lovely wine that is presently still on the way up in magnum format even though with some aeration it could be enjoyed now. – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 94/100 (2015)
