Domaine Jean-Claude Ramonet Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Boudriotte Rouge 2014
- Pinot Noir
- Red Wine
There is just enough reduction to shave the top notes from the aromatic profile of cherry, raspberry, herbal tea and earth whiffs. Like the Clos St. Jean, the flavors are not exactly lighter weight but neither are they especially concentrated though on the plus side they do possess excellent flavor authority while managing to offer sneaky good depth and persistence. I wouldn't describe this as a classic Boudriotte of power and punch but it is finer than the typical example. Worth checking out. - AM
Domaine Ramonet is a prominent wine producer in the Burgundy appellations of Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet. The estate's most important wines are made from Chardonnay from the area's grand cru vineyards, and are highly collectible, often selling for high prices at auction. Domaine Ramonet makes several red wines from Pinot Noir as well. Pierre Ramonet began buying land on the Montrachet hill in the 1930s and, by the 1950s, owned land in several premier and grand cru vineyards. In the 1970s, he acquired a piece of the famed Le Montrachet site, and now Ramonet owns more than 15 hectares (37 acres) of vineyards, making wines ranging from village-level to grand and premier cru.
