A rich, dense and creamy texture forms the backdrop for lemon cake, peach, pastry and butterscotch aromas and flavors. Harmonious and concentrated, with a long aftertaste of fruit and spice. Shows terrific intensity and complexity. Best from 2021 through 2030. 60 cases imported. BS (5/2020)

The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Boudriotte is, as usual, the most fragrant and expressive of Ramonet's premiers crus, bursting from the glass with scents of clear honey, white flowers, fresh peach and pear. On the palate, its medium to full-bodied, satiny and elegant, with an expressive core of fruit, succulent acids and a long, perfumed finish. This is a beautifully balanced, charming Boudriotte that will drink well young but also reward bottle age.

The 2017 vintage has turned out very well indeed at Domaine Ramonet, and gets my nod as the finest set of wines produced at this historic Chassagne-Montrachet reference point since 2014. Ramonet's 2017s are a bit more giving than the 2014s, with more exuberant fruit tones, and some cuvées are surprisingly ripe and sun-kissed in personality. Among the premiers crus, this year's Morgeot, Vergers and Ruchottes are all quite rich wines, a reminder that 2017 was ultimately what the French call a "solaire" vintage. By contrast, however, the 2017 Champ Canet and Caillerets are both beautifully tensile. All the domaine's grands crus are brilliant, and the Montrachet itself is without question one of the wines of the vintage. WK (1/2020)

Here too there is a phenolic note (nut or olive oil characters) to the resin, white orchard fruit and nicely floral scents. There is very good richness to the caressing, indeed almost lush and creamy, medium-bodied flavors that possess an abundance of dry extract that imparts a sappy texture to the delicious, sneaky long and already solidly complex finish where the only nit is a touch of warmth. I would note that this benefitted enormously from several hours of aeration which bodes well for future development. (6/2020)

Bright yellow with a green tinge. Sexy sulfidey complexity to the stone fruit aromas. In a distinctly supple style and the most feminine of the '17s I tasted at Ramonet, conveying lovely sweetness and purity. Terrific fat fruit here, not to mention enticing early balance. ST (7/2018)
