The 1990 Corton Charlemagne from Bonneau du Martray is now entering a semi mature state. In the bouquet still quite youthful with citrus and grapefruit notes, but also some quite mature notes – bread crust, slight almond and a hint of caramel. On the palate very good length and weight from the terroir, a real aristocratic wine. Fresh vibrant and nervy acidity, a very strong impression of the terroir and minerality – a classical Corton Charlemagne. A really impressive wine, – it’s elegant, refined and quite powerfull in a quite steely and linear way. Not very complex yet, but has a zen like balance – must say I really enjoyed this wine. Will keep for decades in a cold cellar … but why wait?
