Red Burgundy Chevillon, Robert 2002 Nuits 1er Cru Chaignots

4 Bottle 75cl £95
  • Tasting note: Here there is a completely different expression as the earth, leather and iron quality plus floral notes dominate the expressive red fruit nose and rich, superbly intense flavors that both coat and stain the palate with buckets of sappy extract. To be sure, this is no model of finesse though it is by no means rustic either but the complexity, quality of material and harmony combine to create a wine of lovely potential.

White Burgundy Bonneau du Martray 1995 Corton Charlemagne

4 Bottle 75cl £150

    1995
    Corton-Charlemagne
    Grand Cru White 750 ml
    Score: 91
    Tasted: Jul 05, 2010
    Drink: Now
     
    Tasting note: A mature and elegant if ever-so-slightly exotic and ripe white pear and green apple suffused nose is followed by medium weight, concentrated and relatively round flavors that offer excellent acid/fruit balance and impressive if not truly sensational length. This is drinking perfectly now though it should certainly hold for at least another decade, perhaps longer. Consistent notes.

White Burgundy Bonneau du Martray 2002 Corton Charlemagne

[Duty Paid]

1 Case 6 150cl £1,900
  • Brilliant and ultra fine aromas of green apples and limestone lead to almost Chablis-like intensity and razor-sharp, incredibly delineated, chiseled flavors that offer superb texture and an almost chewy finish. This is quite different from many examples of 2002 Corton-Charlemagne as this more of a world class gymnast than a weight lifter as it's sleek, silky and taut plus the delineation is like a hot knife through butter. In short, this is reference standard Corton-Charlemagne and highly recommended.

    Score: 93 Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, July 2005

    Boasting terrific aromatic richness, the white flower and ripe apple-scented 2002 Corton-Charlemagne has awesome depth, gorgeous balance, and is impressively refined. Copious quantities of spiced minerals are intermingled with white fruits in its intense, fresh, concentrated core. This light to medium-bodied wine is not a blockbuster, yet I’d rather dine with Audrey Hepburn than Anna Nicole Smith. Projected maturity: 2006-2015.

    Score: 92/94 Pierre-Antoine Rovani, Wine Advocate (151), February 2004

    Shows fine density, even a slight astringency. Ripe, apple and peach flavours are rich and persistent, with vanilla and mineral notes emerging on the long, expansive finish, where it reveals its potential. Best from 2008 through 2018.

    Producer note: The cellar master noted that "2017 produced wines that are not as dense as their 2016 counterparts but they're more elegant. The growing season was relatively straightforward and while the vines suffered a bit of hydric stress in August, that was really the only problem we had. We chose to begin picking on the 31st of August with the pinot and then picked the chardonnay from the 1st to the 6th of September. The fruit was quite clean and ripe so the vinifications were easy in both colors. We're doing an 18 month élevage with about 30% new wood. The wines spend 12 months in cask and then another 6 in tank, which allows them to retain freshness while better harmonizing. I would describe the wines as textured and refreshing yet serious and they should have no trouble aging well."

    Tasting note: An elegant, pure and admirably fresh nose flashes notes of green apple, mineral reduction and white flower scents. The racy but lacy middle weight flavors possess both excellent detail and an abundance of minerality before culminating in a refreshing, dry and clean finish that is less austere than usual. This should age well over the next decade.
