Bonneau du Martray Corton Charlemagne 2011

$285.00

 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. (ST)  (10/2013) 93 points Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar

 Not surprisingly this really hasn’t changed very much from my original review last year (see herein) other than I have extended the initial drinking window slightly. I repeat the note here: There is a hint of mandarin orange to the otherwise more classic aromas of white peach, green apple, citrus and wet stone. The well-detailed and intensely stony medium weight plus flavors possess an excellent sense of underlying tension on the saline-infused, dry and well-balanced finish. I like the mid-palate concentration and while this is already delicious, this is sufficiently serious as to require another 4 to 6 years of cellar time. (AM)  (11/2015) 92 points Allen Meadows – Burghound
