Bonneau du Martray Corton Rouge Grand Cru 2011
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 ripe but brooding nose of dark berry fruit liqueur aromas display added breadth in the form of violets, plum, black cherry and a hint of the sauvage. There is plenty of earth influence to the punchy, rich and well-detailed mineral-inflected broad-shouldered flavors that possess some rusticity on the moderately austere finish. This robust and muscular yet focused effort will require plenty of bottle age to soften the prominent structure. (91-93)/2023+ Issue 50 Allen Meadows; Burghound
