Domaine Bonneau du Martray

As legend goes, Charlemagne, king of the Franks, ordered Chardonnay planted in the vineyard of Corton during his reign in the 8th century so as he would not stain his light-coloured beard during moments of great thirst. Whether this is mere romantic fallacy, what cannot be denied is the exceptional quality of this appellation, particularly the wines from Bonneau du Martray. Domaine Bonneau du Martray planted its noble roots shortly after the French Revolution when vineyard land was swooped up from the church and resold to often wealthy bourgeoisies. Over the years, bits and pieces were chiselled off due to family divisions to what remains of the estate today - 11 hectares. Despite its losses, it remains the largest vineyard holder in Le Corton climat (9.5 ha) and is the only domaine besides Domaine de la Romanée Conti that produces exclusively grands crus. Since 1994, the domaine has been managed by Comte Jean-Charles le Bault de la Morinière, the great nephew to René Bonneau du Martray. Though the family owns a small amount of Corton (which is treated as the spoiled baby of the family), their Corton Charlemagne is the wine for which they are celebrated. Regal and powerful, it is a wine which conquers the palate and is without a doubt, one of the finest white Burgundies produced in the Côte d'Or.

Region

Corton

The Grands Crus of Corton, a red made from Pinot Noir, and Corton Charlemagne, a white made from Chardonnay are shared between Aloxe-Corton, Ladoix Serrigny and Pernand Vergelesses. The vines for both are planted on the hillsides underneath the plateau of Corton's woodland forest. The majorityof Pinot Noir is planted in the southern and eastern sector where the soil is naturally rich with red iron clay giving additional body and power. Overall, the wines from these areas tend to be fruit forward and fleshy with a balance of round edges and fine concentration.
