2008 Domaine Ramonet Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Ruchottes (750ml)
By Stephen Tanzer September/October 2010, IWC Issue #152, (See more on Vinous...92(+?) points (Domaine Ramonet Chassagne Montrachet Les Ruchottes) ($90) Pale bright yellow. Reticent but pure aromas of spices, minerals and white flowers, plus a whiff of redcurrant. Smooth and broad but tight, opening only grudgingly to show aromatic notes of violet, lavender, yellow rose and spices. This stony, solidly built wine is less refined and sexy today than the Caillerets but has a strong acid/mineral structure for aging.
