Winemaker Notes

Light green in color. Aromas of rich citrus, butter and white fruits. It exhibits white/yellow orchard fruit flavors (peach) with tones of butterscotch on the finish. A crisp white, it is powerful and elegant, with steady tones of pastry and spice.

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Tight and linear, this sleek white offers apple, floral, spice, lemon and toasted brioche notes, with fresh acidity reigning in the finish. There's ample richness around the edges for balance. Best from 2017 through 2025.
BH 91
Burghound.com
A discreet touch of wood sets off very pretty floral, pear, resin and discreet citrus aromas. There is good richness to the generously proportioned, textured and sappy middle weight flavors that possess not only fine depth but also excellent persistence on the balanced finish. This is slightly finer than it I usually find it and like the Morgeot it is one of the few wines in the range that could be approached young.

Domaine Ramonet, Chassagne-Montrachet, Cote de Beaune, Cote d'Or, Burgundy, 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

View all wine

A Côte de Beaune village 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.

Chardonnay

View all wine

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 practically every country in the wine producing world grows it, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. As far as cellar potential, white Burgundy rivals the world’s other age-worthy whites like Riesling or botrytized Semillon. California is Chardonnay’s second most important home, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia and South America are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

In the Glass

When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay flavors tend towards grapefruit, lemon zest, green apple, celery leaf and wet flint, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of melon, peach and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut and spice, while malolactic fermentation imparts a soft and creamy texture.

Perfect Pairings

Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with flaky white fish with herbs, scallops, turkey breast and soft cheeses. Richer Chardonnays marry well with lobster, crab, salmon, roasted chicken and creamy sauces.

Sommelier Secret

Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. In Burgundy, the subregion of Chablis, while typically employing the use of older oak barrels, produces a similar bright and acid-driven style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy its lighter style.
