Chassagne Magic - Don't Miss:
2017 Ramonet Chassagne-Montrachet

Posted by Ian McFadden

Ramonet is one of the time-tested greats of white Burgundy.

Catch a Ramonet in top form, which is usually the case, and you'll find a case study in tension and intensity.

Ramonet's line-up covers pretty much everything from mighty Grand Crus, like Montrachet, to low profile overachievers, like Ruchottes, and dead serious villages bottlings that offer dynamite value.

I'm very excited to start offering the 2017 white Burgundies. This is an absolutely gorgeous vintage for the wines. The 2017s are radiant, supremely balanced, and charming beyond description. It's a vintage that you immediately fall for.

Ramonet's 2017 boasts a blazing energy and a pointed minerality. The Chassagne villages has a sleek refinement and serious length. It's bright and punchy delivering loads of stony minerality, citrus and floral notes.

At this sharp pricing, I strongly suggest that you stock up on Ramonet's Chassagne. The wine hits the elusive combination of rigor, deliciousness and value. I bought every bottle that I could, but I really doubt that this parcel will stick around for long.
