Description

2011 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Domaine Bonneau du Martray

Wine Advocate-Parker
Bottled in spring 2013, the 2011 Corton Grand Cru has an airy bouquet that is quite deceptive. Give it modest aeration and it unveils a hidden fruit intensity - raspberry and strawberry leaf, a slightly sauvage element to the aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied with a very zesty, inviting entry. There is a meatiness to the fruit, irony almost, with superb definition and focus toward the finish. This has real character. This is a very accomplished Corton Rouge and a worthy follow-up to the outstanding 2010.

Stephen Tanzer
Outer quote mark Pale silver-straw color. Enticing, pure aromas of lemon, white plum, wild herbs and menthol, lifted by a hawthorn topnote. Pliant, silky and fat but also fresh and precise, with complex, concentrated flavors of lemon, grapefruit pith, spices and powdered stone. Lovely classic vintage with texture, balance and depth. Finishes very long, with subtle sweetness and noteworthy clarity. A repeating note of menthol calls for patience, though.
