This lot contains three magnums of 2002 Corton-Charlemagne from Domaine Bonneau du Martray, picked from one of Burgundy's most celebrated hillside vineyards.
'A fully mature yet still attractively fresh nose features notes of citrus, green apple, white flowers and wet stone. There is really lovely intensity to the beautifully delineated and mineral-driven middle weight flavors that offer superb length on the citrus-tinged finale. This sleek effort has now reached it apogee though it should be capable of holding there for another decade. Tasted twice recently with consistent notes. 93/100' Allen Meadows - Burghound, 2015
Sometimes referred to as 'the Chablis of the Cote d'Or' for its ability to combine power and flesh with a purer, minerally edge more readily associated with wines from cooler, more northerly vineyards. Corton-Charlemagne is named after the Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne, who once owned the hill of Corton on which the vineyards now rest.
