Located on the famous Corton hill, the Burgundy emblem, the Bonneau du Martray vineyard is owned by the same family since more than 2 centuries. The legend says that the estate was owned by the emperor Charlemagne who as a wine-lover decided to give its name. In 1969, Renée Bonneau du Martray donated its estate to his nephew, Jean Le Bault, Comte de la Morinière. He stays until then in the family before being bought by the American Stanley Kroenke who is already owner of well-known estate in California. Bonneau du Martray produces 2 different Grands Crus: the Corton Charlemagne, emblematic white wine and the Corton, a red wine coming from the same parcels and reinterpreted in red wine. Each part of this magnificent terroir is cared with attention of every moment. Its worldwide reputation is the work of a meticulous effort, the estate has always offered “ready to drink” wines with beautiful thinness, great density and a unique preciseness.
