Domaine Bonneau du Martray, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2000

Martray Corton Charlemagne 2000

From a single large parcel in the heart of the original Charlemagne vineyards of Corton. Separate fermentation of each vineyard block. A year in barrel with late summer malolactic. Full six months on the fine lees in tank.

Lemon-yellow with a touch of emerald.  Bouyant in its demeanor, wreathed in garlands of honeysuckle and acacia, this Martray flies weightlessly on a serene trapeze of lime, gooseberry and stone fruit.  Ethereal in its lift, delicacy and class.  Soothing herbal tones inform the cucumber-saline finish.  It may not rank among the indomitable Martrays but its dao-like tranquility made us pause and reflect.  Bien dans sa peau Corton Charlemagne.  Breathtaking now; you can still keep this.  Now – 2020.
