A little gun smoke and matchstick. Heightened lemon them an oily intense midpalate. Good carry through to the end. Open

Seemed more evolved than the 08. Less focused and lifted for me. Hazelnut, brioche and golden apple. Had a yeasty quality that didn't resonate with me and I think I enjoyed this vintage less than most who identified it as their favorite of the flight....but it was still wonderful.

This '09 from mag was one of the top 3 Chardonnays I've ever had the pleasure of drinking.

Young Bonneau du Martray; just linear, oak though a big presence is layered, nose awfully restrained and fruit basically hidden until it evolves some more; try in a decade maybe two; so slight but so tight; acid tucked behind the wood too; an evolution to happen; great Corton; an even better site when I drove past this vineyard in May this year; #drinkFrance #drinkburgundy #côtedor #cortoncharlemagne #corton #bonneaudumartray #grandcru #domaine #2009 #uncorkedandcultivated #wineandfoodtours #France2016

This is a wonderful wine there is a sense of reserve and depth the fruit and acidity and power all balance wonderfully
