Reviews 90 points Wine Advocate "Wafting from the glass with notes of crisp green orchard fruit, white flowers, blanched almonds and vanilla pod, the 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Abbaye de Morgeot is medium-bodied, ample and succulent, with a delicate core of fruit, lively acids and moderate concentration. Giving and open-knit, like most of these 2018s, it will drink well with only a modicum of bottle age. (WK)" 91 points Burghound "Minty and overtly citrus-suffused aromas include whiffs of petrol, orange peel and white peach. There is fine volume to the relatively sleek medium weight flavors that possess a caressing yet relatively powerful mouthfeel while exhibiting good length on the dry, mildly austere and decidedly compact finish where enough warmth to mention slowly emerges.

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.
