Stunning Museum Release Corton-Charlemagne 2005 from Bonneau du Martray

Stunning Museum Release Corton-Charlemagne 2005 from Bonneau du Martray

Bonneau du Martray C-C 2005 header
A brilliant 14 year old release direct from the domaine's cellars
Try a bottle - it is fantastic
The forested mop-top of the hill of Corton is often the first recognizable " Burgundian" feature that comes into view as you approach the region from the East. It is from this hill that the finest white wines in the Côte de Nuits are found and there is no producer held in higher esteem than Bonneau du Martray. The estate covers just over 11 hectares with 9.5 hectares in Corton-Charlemagne and the remainder Corton. Their biodynamically run vineyards produce the appellations finest wines with amazing purity, precision and line and their lineage and pedigree in the cellar is without peer.

Last week I shared a bottle of their 2005 Corton-Charlemagne that had come direct from the domaine. It was unbelievably fresh and youthful. I would have though the wine was just a few years old. Such are the joys of wines that have been stored in the producer's cold cellars all of their life.

This morning I am pleased to offer this very same Museum Release wine. If you are interested in White Burgundy with some age in impeccable condition you should try some of this. It is stunning!

Domaine Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2005 Museum Release

Bonneau C-C Burghound: A ripe and classic nose of distinctly discreet and reserved green fruit and floral aromas that are airy, pure and lightly spiced merge into intense, precise and penetrating medium full flavors blessed with terrific acid/fruit balance and huge length. This is really a lovely wine that is presently a tightly coiled spring and in need of extended bottle aging to really put on display the superb potential here. An understated stunner of a wine as well as ultra refined and one of the best examples of this appellation in 2005.  (Drink starting 2015). 95 Points
John Gilman "View from the Cellar": Happily, this bottle of 2005 Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne was absolutely pristine and was showing young and magically, delivering a deep and utterly superb nose of peach, pear, iodine, chalky minerality, pastry cream, white flowers and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and quite vibrant, with a rock solid core, laser-like focus and simply stellar length and grip on the racy finish. No signs of premox here in this utterly stunning wine! 
(Drink between 2014-2035). 96 Points
Jancis Robinson: Lovely smoky nose with real richness underneath. Charming breadth but no lack of tension. Not fat at all though very intense. Powerful and mineral. Opened five days ago. Apparently it tastes just the same. Very fresh and firm and with great spine. 18.5/20

We also have some 1999 and 1998 from the same museum release available. I have not tasted these vintages recently. I expect the wines will also be pristine.

Faiveley C-C Label
Domaine Faiveley Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2016
Another seriously good Corton-Charlemagne.
Jasper Morris MW: 
Fine bright pale colour. Brilliant dancing nose, elegant yet intense, very striking. No frost here. This is singing, a beautiful concentration of intense and classic fruit, white fruit with the expected stony undertones, very good length. Stylish finish. 94-96 Points

Vinous: Stephen Tanzer: Pale yellow. Alluring nose combines aromas of citrus fruits, peach, stone and lavender; comes across as riper and more sedate than the Faiveley cuvées from south of Beaune. Plush, sweet, pliant and rather full but not heavy; this has the silkiness and palate feel of a Pinot Noir and the cool density of the Ladoix-Serrigny side of the appellation. Citrus and soil flavors are nicely supported by a firm core of limestone minerality. This terrific expression of terroir finishes with a rising whiplash of flavor. (Drink between 2024-2034). 95 Points
