Reviews 91 points Wine Advocate "...very charming, with a lovely bouquet of lime zest, ripe pear, wheat toast and creamy new oak. On the palate, the wine is glossy and quite open knit, with nice integration and decent acidity. (WK)" 91 points Burghound "A discreet touch of wood sets off very pretty floral, pear, resin and discreet citrus aromas. There is good richness to the generously proportioned, textured and sappy middle weight flavors that possess not only fine depth but also excellent persistence on the balanced finish. (AM)"
The Ramonet brothers, Jean-Claude and Noel, currently oversee the 17-hectare property, which boasts a diverse range of vineyards from village level to Premier Cru and Grand Cru. This is thanks to the foresight of Jean-Claude's grandfather, who diligently acquired premium vineyards in the 1920s. The winemaking at Domaine Ramonet remains true to tradition, allowing the region's unique terroir to shine through in the wines. The addition of aging in French oak barrels and lees contact imparts a subtle creaminess to the wine, perfectly balancing the stony and citrusy flavors.
These wines are known for their aging potential, with some bottles capable of developing for over 50 years. While the highly sought-after Premier and Grand Cru bottlings are relatively rare, even the village-level wines are a collector's favorite and showcase the true excellence of white Burgundy.
