The 2011 Chassagene-Montrachet from Domaine Ramonet is a beauty but not quite as extrovert sexy as the 1er cru Clos St. Jean. The nose is delightfully bursting with red berry fruit – cherries, raspberries and cherry stones – crisp and openly knit with a discrete hint of minerality. On the palate vibrant and forward … quite lightfooted … with a nice focusing minerality. A lovely fresh and forward pinot … delightful juice.
