    Domaine Bachelet-Ramonet

    Domaine Bachelet-Ramonet, France
    For four generations, the domaine of Bachelet-Ramonet has been located in the heart of the Côte d'Or, south of the Côte de Beaune, in the town of Chassagne-Montrachet. This famous village is one of five villages considered to be the 'Côte des Blancs', a strip of land considered to be the best place on earth for white wine, with an international reputation for excellence. This Domaine was created when Claude Ramonet passed away in 1977 and his daughter added her inheritance to her husband Georges Bachelet’s holdings. Claude’s son, Pierre, kept the rest of the vineyards and continued to make wines under the Domaine Ramonet label. Alain Bonnefoy, who married into the family, now runs Bachelet-Ramonet. While Alain has continued the tradition of making elegant, balanced wines, his techniques in the vineyard and the cellar are now producing more concentrated wines. All the wines are aged in some new oak, with the Grands Crus seeing as much as 45 percent. Over four generations have taken care of this land. Today the family Bonnefoy-Bachelet works 13 hectares of vines that are ideally situated at the foot of the hill of Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet.White wines are matured in oak casks for 14 to 16 months and red wines receive 15 to 17 months. The wines produced at the domain are all made and bottled at the property.

    Chassagne-Montrachet Wine

    Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

    View all products

    A Côte de Beaune village of Burgundy most famous for its beautifully textured and powerful whites, Chassagne-Montrachet reaches farthest south in the Côte d’Or, save for the village of Santenay. It has three Grands Crus vineyards: Le Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet and Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet. Le Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet overlap with and are (confusingly) shared with the village of Puligny-Montrachet. But Chassagne-Montrachet bears sole ownership of the Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru.

    The beauty doesn’t stop there as the village has a great many outstanding Premiers Crus wines and village level wines. Most famous Premiers Crus vineyards include Les Chenevottes, Clos de la Maltroie, En Cailleret and Les Ruchottes. Also, village level wines offer many lovely examples of what Chassagne-Montrachet has to offer, but at more approachable price points and perhaps less demand of waiting.

    The best sites in Chassagne-Montrachet have complex soils of sedimentary rock and limestone (with less marl). Whites, which are by law composed of 100% Chardonnay (as in all classified white Burgundy from Côte d’Or), have steely power, bright and concentrated citrus, stone or tropical fruit characteristics and attractive textures ranging from plush to tactile, grippy and mineral-driven.

    There is some fine Pinot Noir produced from the village. These wines tend to be high-toned and earthy, with wild herb aromas and suave tannins.

    Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
