Bonneau du Martray

Bonneau du Martray The large and splendid estate of Bonneau du Martray, owned by the Count de La Moriniere, is something of a rarity in Burgundy: its more than 25 acres form one continuous vineyard. What is all the more remarkable is that this great swath of vines produces two of Burgundy's finest wines - Corton (from Pinot Noir) and Corton Charlemagne (from Chardonnay). The wines are made by traditional methods: soft pressing, barrel fermentation in new oak and careful aging. These are long lived wines that need a few years to show their character.
