One of the superstars of Burgundy, Domaine Ramonet produces a scintillating range of wines across their portfolio from their village Chassagne-Montrachet to the stellar Grand Crus of Chevalier-Montrachet, Batard-Montrachet and Le Montrachet itself. Plenty of solids and very little new oak apart from the Le Montrachet lead to solid, textured wines that sing of their appellations and the soil from which they spring. What Domaine de la Romanée Conti is to red Burgundy, Domaine Ramonet is to white Burgundy, with profound, finely constructed wines of incredible concentration and grace. Seemingly tightly-bound in their youth the wines of Ramonet blossom into some of the finest examples of white Burgundy with time in the cellar.
A hint of unabsorbed sulfur does not materially detract from the otherwise fresh and bright green fruit, lemon and herb suffused aromas that merge into rich, full and relatively robust medium-bodied flavors that possess good concentration in the context of the vintage as well as good intensity on the very tangy and citrusy finish. There is good depth and persistence and this should make for a lovely wine in 6 years or so. Tasted: Oct 01, 2009; Score: 89 Points; Drink: 2011+ Issue 36 Allen Meadows; Burghound
