Winemaker Notes

Bright golden color. Floral and citrus aromas with toasty tones. Exudes seductive flavors of resin, petrol, spice, pear, peach, and apricot. This is the most intense wine of the estate, expressive and complex, combining the weight and punch of the Bâtard with the sophistication of the Chevalier.

Critical Acclaim

BH 94
Burghound.com
This just exudes breed even with its colossal nose of limestone, oak spice and cornucopia of flower aromas, especially dried rose petal followed by powerful, ultra rich, thick, palate staining flavors that are remarkably detailed for such a massively constituted wine. This has a palate impression of a red wine with its tannic structure yet it avoids any sense of heaviness or undue weight. Because it's so rich, it can be enjoyed now but this is clearly a wine that is still improving. Consistent notes.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Ramonet's multi-dimensional 1998 Montrachet is certainly one of the stars of the vintage. Its spice, star anise, toasted oak, and mineral-scented nose gives way to a rich, broad, powerful character. Medium to full-bodied, and exhibiting layers of ripe apples, white pears, and stone-like flavors, this is an intense, concentrated, compelling effort.

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.

Beaune Wine

Burgundy, France

While the city represents the epicenter of wine production in Burgundy, the term, “Beaune” also refers to the specific sub-appellation of the greater Côte de Beaune, whose vineyards climb up the pastoral slopes that border the city to its west. Originally founded as a Roman camp by Julius Caesar, the city of Beaune eventually became the seat of the dukes of Burgundy until the 13th century. Today it is home to top négociants such as Louis Jadot, Joseph Drouhin, Louis Latour, and Bouchard Père et Fils.

The appellation, dominated by Pinot Noir plantings, represents a lovely and charming place to begin to understand red Burgundy. Its sandy soils create light and supple, floral driven Pinot Noir. These wines are designed to be enjoyed within five to 10 years. The vineyards of Beaune span a broad swath of Premier Crus from Savigny-lès-Beaune to its border with Pommard.

Chardonnay acreage here has been increasing here in the more recent years.

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.
