The forest 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 Cote 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.
A very subtle hint of wood frames the restrained, airy, cool and very fresh nose of green apple, citrus and lightly spiced pear aromas that include a touch of mineral reduction. The intensely mineral-driven flavors possess a mouth feel of pure silk thanks to the ample amount of dry extract that buffers well the very firm and bright acidity that supports the transparent, long and refined finish. This bone dry effort is beautifully well-balanced and because of the abundant extract it will be approachable young yet probably require at least a decade to arrive at its full apogee.
