The Chassagne Les Caillerets 2010 from Ramonet is a truly gorgeous wine. In the bouquet lovely ripe yellow fruit with notes of pear, melon and a hint of anis. The finely grained stony minerality is adding to the complexity of the nose – very refined and a bit understated. On the palate very fine pure fruit, very good energy, finely focused and refined with a almost silky texture. The finish is long and refined with a delicate minerality and a playful acidity.… Read the full article →
The Montrachet 2008 from Ramonet is one of the best white Burgundies I have ever tasted. The bouquet is very expressive with orchard fruits – acacia, pear and melon – spiced with hints of citrus and a very intense stony minerality. The palate is impressively harmonious with layers upon layers of intense pure virbrant fruit – the minerality is massively intense and the 2008 acidity is playful and nervy – adding to the complexity. The finish is immensely long and intense – and yet fresh and vibrant.… Read the full article →
The Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot 2010 from Ramonet is a beauty. In the nose fine complex notes of orchard fruits, citrus and citrus zest with a rather intense and robust minerality. On the palate very harmonious with a crisp and rich cool fruit – good balance and integration of fruit and the structuring elements. Rather accessible for a young Ramonet, with a lovely midpalate expression and a long mineralic finish. A lovely and quite refined Chassagne – with the typical robustness of the Morgeot terroir.… Read the full article →
I rarely drink red Chassagne – why? – I love a good red Chassagne-Montrachet but still they tend to get somewhat overlooked. The red Chassagnes often offers a lot of pinot pleasure – with a lovely expressive and charming fruit and a fine minerality. The generic Chassagne village 2010 from Ramonet is certainly no exception. The bouquet offers lovely crisp fruit with red cherries and strawberries – interlinked with a quite filigree stony minerality. It’s very forward and expressive. On the palate good concentration with a delightful balance.… Read the full article →
The Chassagne Les Caillerets 2010 from Ramonet is a truly beautiful effort. In the bouquet lovely ripe yellow fruit with notes of pear, melon – hints of acacia and anis. A lovely playful minerality and acidity is adding to the the complexity of the nose – very refined and a bit understated. On the palate very fine pure fruit, good energy, very focused and refined with a almost silky texture. The finish is long and lingering with a delicate minerality and a playful acidity – what a beautiful wine.… Read the full article →
The Batard Montrachet 2006 from Domaine Ramonet is a typical 2006 white Burgundy. In the bouquet very rich fruit with elements of pear, melon and Belle de Boskoop apples. On the palate rich fruit, quite sweet powerful and dense. The alcohol level is on the high side (14%) and this is showing in the finish clouding the otherwise fine minerality. A very fine effort for the vintage but the alcohol level is somewhat too high for my palate.
The 2008 Bourgogne Blanc from Domaine Ramonet is slightly disappointing given the producer and vintage. In the nose apple with hints of melon and a slight minerality. On the palate good concentration and acidity. It’s well balanced but lacking some vibrancy and transparancy directly compared with Roulot Bourgogne Blanc 2010. The fruit is not as crisp and pure as in the Roulot wine. Very drinkable but not that impressive.
The 2008 lineup from Domaine Ramonet is in my view absolutely gorgeous, and the Chassagne 1er cru Les Vergers is no exception. The nose is slightly closed but showing fine ripe yellow fruits, loads of minerality, grapefruit and citrus notes. On the palate the fruit is somewhat closed, but elements of pear and a slight hint of peach is still appearing. The vibrant acidity and minerality really gives the wine good complexity and balance. Another tremendous 2008 from Ramonet.
Celebrating the New Year is associated with good friends, nice food and a lot of good wines. This year was no exception, as quite many good bottles was on the table.
We always taste the some of the wines while preparing the food. Some of the wines are tasted at the table …. thus making detailed comments impossible.
The Bourgogne Blanc 2009 from Ramonet offered a bouquet with fine ripe fruit. Pear aromas was quite dominant with a slight peach note topped with a hint of chalk, flint and mint. On the palate quite fruity, with a lot of dense tropical flavors … finish with a hint of anis. Typical 2009 with limited acidity and quite heavy fruit. Still quite a good balance for a generic Bourgogne. Not a strong terroir driven wine, but a rather dense fruity chardonney – alcohol only 12,5% – well done!.… Read the full article →
The Chassagne Les Ruchottes 2007 from Ramonet was a true pleasure. The Bouquet was quite undevelloped, with a nice fresh and crisp fruit, a hint of mint and lemon aromas. Fine minerality while the oak was quite well absorbed in the fruit. On the palate fine balance between fruit and acidity – nice crisp freshness. Quite juicy fruit, good minerality and a hint of grapefruit in the finish. A very well balanced effort from Ramonet. Must say I’m getting more and more impressed by Domaine Ramonet – this is how a good white Burgundy should be – but rarely is!… Read the full article →
The Morgeot 2008 has a very charming but also discrete bouquet. Good minerality and a fine core of ripe fruit. On the palate very fine and ripe acidity, a wonderfull balance and harmony. Very good length with a good quite solid core of fruit. The fruit is balanced by a fine minerality and a ripe very refined acidity. The 2008 Ramonet collection is something special.
(From 2016) Very Fine – 93p

The 2001 Bienvenue Batard Montrachet from Ramonet et an very fine perhaps even outstanding white burgundy. Perfectly balanced, good length and with a fresh acidity structure. I really enjoyed this wine, and it just confirm the high quality level at Domaine Ramonet. (2012 – 2022) – 94p
I use my own 100 point rating system here at Winehog.org. Compared with other rating systems used by Robert Parker, Wine Spectator, Allen Meadows (BurgHound), I have more steps between 85 points and 100 points.
The change of the rating system is due to the need to separate the many really good and fine wines rated in the spread between 85 points and 93 points. I really like Clive Coates clear and simple terms … good, very good, fine and very fine, and has integrated these on my 100 points scale.… Read the full article →
