Winemaker Notes

The wine is a pale gold color. On the nose, aromas of acacia, citrus and pear. Deep with displays of sheer concentration. It possesses a good mid-palate and tension, with persistent length and terrific depth.

Critical Acclaim

BH 93
Burghound.com
There is just enough wood influence to notice on the subtly minty, cool and ultra-pure nose of softly petrol-inflected nose of acacia blossom, pear and apple aromas. There is excellent mid-palate concentration to the beautifully textured, mouth coating and mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that display both fine depth and strikingly good persistence. I love the mouth feel as there is plenty of sap but no sense of heaviness plus this will allow this to be approachable young yet also allow it to reward extended cellaring for those who want to let it slumber.

Wine Spectator
Smoke and spice aromas give way to peach and melon notes in this creamy white. The acidity keeps the wine focused, with spice accents echoing on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2023.

Domaine Ramonet, Puligny-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.

Puligny-Montrachet

View all wine

A source of some of the finest, juicy, silky and elegantly floral Chardonnay in the Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet lies just to the north of Chassagne-Montrachet, a village with which it shares two of its Grand Cru vineyards: Le Montrachet itself and Bâtard-Montrachet. Its other two, which it owns in their entirety, are Chevalier-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet. And still, some of the finest white Burgundy wines come from the prized Premier Cru vineyards of Puligny-Montrachet. To name a few, Les Pucelles, Le Clavoillon, Les Perrières, Les Referts and Les Combettes, as well as the rest, lie northeast and up slope from the Grand Cru.

Farther to the southeast are village level whites and the hamlet of Blagny where Pinot noir grows best and has achieved Premier Cru status.

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’s grown and how it’s made. In Burgundy, Chardonnay produces some of the finest white wines in the world, typically tending towards minimal intervention in the winery and at its best resulting in remarkable longevity. This grape is popular throughout the world, but perhaps its second most important home is in California, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia, South America, South Africa, and New Zealand are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

In the Glass

When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay’s flavors tend towards grapefruit, green apple, minerals, and white stone fruit, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of fig, melon, and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut, and spice (as well as texture), while malolactic fermentation can impart soft, buttery acidity.

Perfect Pairings

Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with simple seafood, light chicken dishes, and salads. Richer Chardonnays marry well with cream or oil-based 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. These Old-World style wines have been dubbed the “New California Chardonnays,” and anyone who claims they do not like Chardonnay should give them a try.
