With vines whose history can be traced back one-thousand years, Domaine Bonneau du Martray is dedicated to the production of two grands crus: Corton-Charlemagne and Corton.

Two great wines, a vineyard in one location, a unique philosophy since 1835 and even beyond, Domaine Bonneau du Martray has established its excellence over the years among lovers of great wines, in Burgundy, and around the world.

The Domaine’s vines, mainly planted with Chardonnay but also with Pinot Noir, are only found on the hill of Corton. As a result, the Domaine’s team is dedicated to creating only the best: the great wines of Corton-Charlemagne and Corton.

The Domaine was recently purchased by Stan Kroenke (Screaming Eagle, Arsenal FC) and there has been significant investment put into the winery and the vineyards with the aim to elevate the quality towards the very best wines from Montrachet.

Tasting Notes

91 Points Allen Meadows
he white flower and very ripe green apple aromas are nuanced by notes of straw and melon with rich, sweet and opulent medium full flavors that are thick, powerful and display ample pain grillé plus a touch of bitter lemon on the long finish. This is a dense, mouth coating wine with huge amounts of dry extract and while it will certainly age, there is so much baby fat present that it could be approached now. A very fine example for the vintage.

90-93 Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Gorgeous aromatics of rich pears and white peaches emanate from the glass of the 2003 Corton-Charlemagne (white). A wine of impressive breadth and harmony, its suave personality spreads out over the palate releasing waves of satin-textured white fruits, slate, and fresh herbs. Lush, supple, and inviting, this offering’s long finish displays a slight brightness of acid (natural), rendering it surprisingly light on its feet. One of the top 2003 white Burgundies, it should be at its best between 2006 and 2014. Bravo!
