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.
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.
