Bonneau de Martray is based in Pernand-Vergelesses. It is unique in producing only grand cru classified wine. Two wines are made here: a red Corton and a white Corton-Charlemagne, of which latter vineyard the domaine is the largest proprietor. In 2005 the domaine was sold to American Stan Kroenke, the owner of Arsenal football club.
The nose here is much richer than that of the 2004, tasted just before this. The aromas are really ripe and full of super-ripe apple fruit, plus good spice from the wood. There is a touch of creamy wood evident on the palate, but all nicely controlled. Very ripe apples and taut minerals lace the palate. This is long squared and very fine wine indeed. Bowes Wine original note
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
