Gardenia, ripe Apple and pear. Wet earth, minerality, m+ acid, m body. Roasted nuts, lemon zest. A bit creamy. Cannot believe this is a 1998 vintage. It can probably age another 20 years easily.

Such a lovely wine. Still youthful. At a great place in its evolution. Drink it now.

1998 Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru - Solid developmental character with balance and complexity. Aromas of mineral, citrus peel and green bean with flavors of dried pineapple, fuji apple and hints of nougat (oxidized notes) Bright and fresh with a rich smooth texture. F-ing gorgeous.

Good. Rather oaky. Even seems to have some wood tannins. Drink up.
