2013 Domaine Ramonet Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets (750ml)
We have 1 in stock.
Noticeable but not intrusive oak treatment and discreet mint nuances frame the nicely intense and mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess a terrific sense of underlying tension before culminating in a textured, linear and wonderfully long finish. I should note that with an hour of air this changed radically; initially the mid-palate was almost creamy yet the longer it aired the tighter and less forthcoming it became, indeed the finish was borderline austere. This is extremely promising and while it doesn't happen all that often, 2013 is a vintage where the Caillerets may very well outclass the Ruchottes. 93 Points BH
