Bonneau du Martray

The affable Laurent Martray, formerly winemaker at Château de la Chaize, has a small holding of five hectares, centred around a prime south/south east facing plot called La Folie, next door to Château Thivin. In addition there is a single hectare planted on Mont Brouilly, from where his Côte de Brouilly ‘Les Feuilles’ Cuvée hails, which was planted in 1916. The soils are extremely rocky, giving rise to a wine with a strong inner core of typical Côte de Brouilly minerality. Artisan and traditional, Laurent hand harvests and then ferments with de-talked and whole bunches, followed by macerations of up to 16 days. After ageing the wines in large used oak foudres and demi muids for up to 16 months, bottlng is carried out without filtration. These are vivid and really soulful Cru Beaujolais that speak clearly of terroir and craftsman ship. They are bursting with personality but are also produced with drinkability in mind.
