ABOUT THE WINE
An estate inextricably tied to Corton-Charlemagne, holders of the largest part of this illustrious vineyard, they are, in fact, the only domaine in Burgundy beside Domaine de la Romanee-Conti to produce exclusively Grand Cru wines. The vineyard is one continuous plot of 11.09 hectares, the exact same piece of land gifted to the Abbey of Saulieu by Emperor Charlemagne in 775 CE, acquired a thousand years later by the Bonneau du Martray family after the French Revolution.

TASTING NOTES
Low yields, no artificial herbicides or fertilisers; 1.5 hectares of 45-year old vines divided into two small parcels at the bottom of the Le Charlemagne vineyard. Made entirely by hand, with no part of the process either automated or regulated by technology. 12-18 months in cask, depending on vintage. An insider-secret from an estate best-known for its white wines; deep ruby, with red and dark fruit on the nose, with a briar-patch vegetal complexity. Rich and generous on the palate, with superb structure and succulent gamey fruit, this is an intense, iconic wine drinking beautifully from 2020.

FOOD PAIRING
Roast duck, with all the trimmings.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
An experience to be savoured over a number of hours as it opens up in the glass, it will change over time from tightly coiled, wild bramble-fruit delight to dark chocolate, coulis-scented ecstasy. Very fine indeed.
