Lot #24. Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne 1999

Description: Consists of 5 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 93-95 NM.
"First tasted in Apr-05 at the Martray vertical. An attractive smoky, stony nose with apple scents. The palate is well balanced, with the oak a little bit prominent at the moment. Smooth, backward, muted. Lime and a touch of creme fraiche on the finish. Needs time. Good potential. My score may creep upwards in a few years time. Then at Chateau Palmer…blow me down: a Burgundy in Bordeaux. A stunning, minerally nose with a touch of oyster shells. Still quite a lot of new oak showing at the moment. A little yeasty on the palate, but brilliant poise and definition with a glycerin-finish. Very focused and harmonious. Everything you could ask for in a Corton-Charlemagne." Neal Martin, Wine Journal, Dec 1999
Notes: 2 Very lightly scuffed labels.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,200
