(2014 was the first vintage for this bottling by Ramonet): Rather reduced nose hints at iodiney minerality. Densely packed and intensely flavored, with its pungent lemony citricity complicated by a distinctly petrolly, gunflinty note. Finishes impressively brisk, long and serious. Ramonet's vines in Saint-Aubin were not frosted in 2016, according to Jean-Claude. This very concentrated wine is more about soil than primary fruit.
Due west of Puligny and Chassagne lies the little, picturesque village of St. Aubin. With the neighbouring village of Gamay, it produces 2/3 white wine and 1/3 red wine over 230 hectares of vines of which over 3/4 are premier cru. It was one of the last appellations created in only 1970 but has since created an excellent reputation for good value well made Burgundy that can replicatePuligny. Some of the most expressive vineyards are En Remilly and Les Murgers des Dents de Chien.
