Burghound, June 2019,
There is plenty of matchstick character present on the overtly floral aromas of pear liqueur, spice and a hint of jasmine tea. The sleek and very attractively textured medium weight flavors possess a beguiling sense of underlying tension that exudes a fine bead of minerality while a firm acid spine is more prominent on the wonderfully long and slightly firmer finish where the warmth is a bit more evident. Despite the warmth, the higher level of acidity compensates and overall, I found this to be almost as classy as the BBM and certainly denser. Drink 2027+
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.
