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)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An elegant, pure and admirably fresh nose flashes notes of 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 should age well over the next decade. Inner quote mark (6/2019)

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, aged in around 30% new oak from three coopers, has quite an assertive bouquet; for me, the wood component is a little conspicuous at the moment, despite the modest percentage that it represents in the blend. The palate is more harmonious, and here the wood component feels better subsumed into the fabric of the wine. It offers a fine bead of acidity (pH 3.20), a sense of energy toward the finish and veins of orange pith and light spicy tones. This should be fascinating to watch, but I would like to see that wood component on the nose become fully integrated. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

93-96 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "We tasted first samples from the top of the slope, the middle and the lower part. The complete blend delivers an attractive pale lemon colour; the bouquet is very discreet but with real presence. All is there. Light lemon and limes on the nose, the full mineral content, linear intensity in the mouth, nothing broad, no banana notes, just a purity of white stone fruit. The oak is well integrated."
