- ABV 13.5%
- Closure: Cork
Arguably the star of the village of Chassagne-Montrachet, Jean-Claude Ramonet is the third generation to have run this truly great estate; carrying on a great reputation, rather than building or re-building. Fruit from vines under 18 years old is excluded from the domaine's cuvées, and yields are severely restricted. The wines are vinified using traditional methods and then aged in oak (33% new) for 12-15 months. The Montrachet is aged in 100% new oak. There is no battonage but there is extended lees contact prior to the first racking.
The 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Vergers reveals a beautifully defined bouquet of citrus oil, lime, toasted nuts and fresh mint—the prelude to a medium-full, glossy wine with tensile acids, excellent depth and dimension and a long, precise finish. The Vergers often has one of the cooler profiles of the Ramonet's Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Crus, and that characteristic has served it well in the warm 2015 vintage.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Feb 2018)
Like the Morgeot, the softly oaky nose is noticeably reduced though not to the same degree; even so, it's enough to push the underlying fruit to the background at present and even extended aeration does not completely lift the funk. Otherwise there is excellent density to the delicious, caressing and sappy medium-bodied flavors that are less muscular than the Boudriotte but, as is typically the case, certainly finer on the bitter lemon-infused finish where the oak resurfaces. There is a touch of warmth and it's hard to predict where this is going as I like the underlying material but the wine seems somewhat disjointed at present. Ramonet has a fine track record with this wine so my score offers the benefit of the doubt that it will come together with time in bottle.
