Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2001, Bonneau du Martray

In blind tastings I often struggle to identify Corton-Charlemagne. Usually I confuse it with Pouilly-Fuissé. With the Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne I would be more likely to confuse it with a very Jurassic Chablis grand cru! This wine has immediate mineral and stone aromas; crushed oyster shells, chalk, white pepper. Light, ethereal, intriguing on the palate. Imagine walking through white silk curtains. Fascinatingly weird. I can't imagine what cuisine this would work well with. Another wine to be tasted blind in perfect conditions starting at 11am to fully understand its mysteries.


  1. If you cannot make any difference when tatsting blindly then you'd better drink Pouilly or Chablis it is cheaper :-)
