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.
