Tasting Notes

    Burghound, June 2015,

    This has what all of the best 2012s have, which is to say a brilliant texture. To be clear, it's not about density per se though that is part of it. Rather it's the way that the density interacts with the acidity such that the flavors deliver both richness and delineation, provided of course that the proper serving temperature is respected because if not the same beguiling texture just becomes heavy. The nose offers up the telltale Ramonet hint of mint along with lovely floral and spice nuances to the mostly white orchard fruit and lemon skin scents that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is fine concentration to the vibrant, cool and ultra-pure medium-bodied flavors that possess that beguiling texture, all wrapped in a palate coating and strikingly long finish. The other seriously impressive aspect to this wine is that even though it will certainly reward at least 8 to 10 years of cellaring (and very likely more), it can be enjoyed now thanks to all of the acid-buffering dry extract. This is not a completely perfect wine as there is a hint of warmth that becomes more apparent if the serving temperature rises, but if that's the worst that can be said, that is already quite a compliment because few wines cannot be faulted in some way if one is really being picky. In sum, this is quite simply terrific.

Producer

Domaine Ramonet

With vines in the most illustrious vineyards along the entire Cote, Domaine Ramonet produces exceptional wines of power, precision and verve. Behind the closed doors of an unassuming address in Chassagne Montrachet Jean Claude Ramonet, a third-generation winemaker, deftly weaves the character of each vintage into the style of the domaine; from Bourgogne Blanc to Batard Montrachet, the wines display an unmistakable signature. Like many Burgundy producers, the domaine has faced its share of challenges in recent vintages but the surehandedness borne of experience gathered over the passage of nearly ninety years since Pierre Ramonet cleared and planted his first Chassagne Montrachet Ruchottes vineyard, has ensured the wines invariably realise their potential. The result of such prowess is that the wines tend to disappear from the market soon after their release and finding older vintages of any description can be a lengthy process.
