RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is lovely, offering up aromas of sweet yellow orchard fruit, iodine, lemon oil, hazelnut cream and honeycomb. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and richly textured, with considerable flesh for the vintage and a deep, concentrated core, though balanced by tangy, incisive acids. The finish is long and expansive. It's a terrific Bâtard that will develop beautifully in the cellar.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
This is toasty right out of the gate, with apple pie, peach, lemon, butterscotch and mineral flavors. Broad and concentrated, yet lively, showing terrific balance and a long, saturated aftertaste of fruit, spice and mineral notes. Best from 2021 through 2032. 40 cases imported.

In the same fashion as the BBM, this initially plays on the edge of reduction but with air hints of exotic fruit, wood, petrol and a whiff of acacia blossom slowly emerge. Once again, like the BBM the flavors are not particularly dense but they do offer an absolutely beguiling texture that is at once sleek but refined, all wrapped in a clean, dry and sneaky long finish that really fans out like a peacock's tail as it sits on the palate. While there is a touch of warmth here as well, the overall impression is more harmonious.

Domaine Ramonet, France
Domaine Ramonet in Chassagne has challenged the best for overall consistency and excellence of their white wines. This estate is regularly producers of remarkable wines at every level, from superb village Chassagnes to master piece grand crus. By Burgundian standards, this is not an old-established domaine, being no more than a third-generation parvenu. Vinyeards have been acquired gradtually since the first purchase in 1934, a parcel of Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Ruchottes. The most recent acquisitions were the Montrachet in 1978, some village Puligny-Montrachet in the lieu-dit of Nosroyes and the St Aubin 1er Cru Charmois.

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.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
