About this Item

Corton-Charlemagne, 2005
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

'Lovely smoky nose with real richness underneath. Charming breadth but no lack of tension. Not fat at all though very intense. Powerful and mineral. Opened five days ago. Apparently it tastes just the same. Very fresh and firm and with great spine.' – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 18,5/20 (Nov 2009)
