About this Item

Corton-Charlemagne, 1999
5 (1 x 5) 750ml
Domaine Bonneau du Martray is one of the most famous estates in Corton Charlemagne. The property was owned by the same family for over two centuries until, in 2017, it was sold to Stan Kroenke, the owner of the world-renowned American estate, Screaming Eagle. In the 8th Century, the estate belonged to Emperor Charlemagne who, legend has it, liked the wine of Corton so much that he gave his name to it. Jean Le Bault, Count of Morinière, inherited the estate in 1969 from his uncle, René Bonneau du Martray, and in 1994 Jean-Charles de la Morinière took over from his father. Domaine Bonneau du Martray only produces Grands Crus. In 1996, after geographically surveying the domaine’s parcels and its nine different soil types, Jean-Charles started vinifying the parcels separately.

Critics Ratings

‘A stunning, minerally nose with a touch of oyster shells. Still quite a lot of new oak showing at the moment. A little yeasty on the palate, but brilliant poise and definition with a glycerin-finish. Very focused and harmonious. Everything you could ask for in a Corton-Charlemagne.’ - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 93-95/100 (Jan 2006)
