2017 Domaine Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru

SKU #1461326 96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Anyone who feared that quality would drop after a change of ownership at this historic domaine will be happy to know that this grand cru white is as good as ever. Blending components from three different terroirs and altitudes, it's an elegant, textured, saline white of incredible precision and understated power, with subtle toasty oak and undertones of jasmine and lemongrass. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is showing superbly from bottle, wafting from the glass with a complex and beautifully integrated bouquet of pear, citrus oil, toasted sesame, warm bread, oyster shell and white flowers. On the palate, it's full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, with a racy spine of acidity and superb concentration without weight, followed by a long, defined finish. Surpassing the high expectations I formed a year ago, this would appear to be the finest wine produced at Bonneau du Martray for over a decade. (WK) 96+ Inner quote mark (1/2020)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Richness and energy come together so well in the 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru. Time in the glass brings out the wine's curves, but the 2017 is so young, especially when tasted next to some of the older wines in this mini-vertical. Lemon confit, marzipan and white flowers add that extra touch of inner perfume and sweetness that is so compelling in this vintage. The 2017 is such a promising Charlemagne. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An elegant, pure and admirably fresh nose flashes notes of smoked green apple, mineral reduction and white flower scents. The racy but lacy middle weight flavors possess both excellent detail and an abundance of minerality before culminating in a refreshing, dry and clean finish that is less austere than usual. This classic CC is almost Chablis-like in its minerality and cut and should age well over the next decade. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

97pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Fine bright pale primrose. There is some gunflint oil and some coconut here on the nose, suggesting both a hint of reduction and a touch of new wood. Everything went very smoothly in vinification, I am told. Pure clear and classic, absolutely the cool as a mountain stream style of stony Corton-Charlemagne. Medium weight shading to properly intense, very youthful but still a style that you can approach. Very persistent. Time will open it out further, and bring more nuance but this can already be seen. A very stylish, accurate and ageworthy Corton-Charlemagne. Tasted: January 2021."
