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.
This blanket regional appellation can apply to wines throughout Burgundy (60% of the area's production) as long as they comply with regulations relating to grape type, yield and alcohol content. Reds and roses are from Pinot Noir or Gamay. Whites are Chardonnay. They are usually the most straightforward of the Burgundy wines, and as a result are the least expensive and the most approachable upon release. In the hands of a more serious producer these can represent exceptional value and quality. The wines are made with the same care and attention to detail as their grander wines. However, they may not qualify for a village or communal appellation because the vines are too young or the vineyard area is outside the appellation boundary.
