A focused beam this white wraps its lime mineral apple and vanilla notes around a core of bracing acidity. Has intensity and balance yet this is firm and crisp on the finish for now with real stony length. Best from 2010...

I had not tasted the 2004 Martray Corton-Charlemagne since a visit to the estate back in 2006, and was very pleased to cross paths with it just this past October here in New York. The wine has evolved beautifully, and is well on its way to becoming a classic vintage of this great wine. The deep and complex nose offers up a lovely array of “cooler fruit tones” redolent of lemon, grapefruit, a touch of anise, powdered stone, spring flowers and a gentle touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is fullish, tight and crisp, with a fine core of fruit, lovely focus and structure, impeccable balance and most impressive length and grip on the racy and beautifully transparent finish. Served immediately after the 2006, the 2004 was noticeably longer and racier than the more opulent 2006. A lovely vintage from Bonneau du Martray, which should age beautifully, if the corks will let it. (Drink between 2012-2030)

The color was very pale straw with green highlights yet there was the barest trace of oxidation on the nose. To be fair, it was extremely subtle, indeed two tasters didn't notice it at first. Yet with air, it became worse... The color was very pale straw with green highlights yet there was the barest trace of oxidation on the nose. To be fair, it was extremely subtle, indeed two tasters didn't notice it at first. Yet with air, it became worse and in the end, it was clear that there was a problem. I include the original tasting note here for ease of reference: A reserved yet elegant nose of white flower, green apple, pear and natural spice and wet stone notes that introduce detailed, fresh and wonderfully intense flavors that are exceptionally clean and bright, culminating in a bone dry finish replete with superb minerality. This is not as dense as the '05 but the purity here is really something to see and as noted last year, it's sufficiently structured that it will need the better part of a decade to reach its apogee. Note that there was a trace of reduction on the nose and this would benefit from 30 minutes in a decanter should you elect to try one.

I began the meal with the 2004 Bonneau de Martray Corton-Charlemagne, which is drinking beautifully at present: a whiff of reduction blew off with aeration, revealing precise mineral driven acacia flower, honeyed stone fruit and delicate hazelnut aromas and flavors. At 200 years and counting, the family running the Domaine knows a thing or two about the Charlemagne vineyards, and it shows. This turned out to be a great food wine, full of lively acidity and no undue weight (even better, this white Burgundy showed no signs of premox). It matched very well with the mozzarella, and even the anchovies weren’t overwhelmed, given the wine’s still bright acidity. It’s drinking beautifully at present, so I am not sure there’s much to gain by hanging on to any bottles much longer. - Ian D'Agata
