Domaine Jean-Claude Ramonet, Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot Blanc 1er Cru 2000

Ramonet Chassagne Morgeot 2000

Ramonet Chassagne Morgeot 2000 #1

Medium pale yellow color.  On the nose, quite clear-cut, well-detailed and neat for Chassagne Morgeot blanc: yellow orchard fruit, Macadamia nut, Chassagne herb, baking spices, turned earth, mineral.  Slightly waxy and a bit lanolin-like on the palate, medium-full: Anjou pear, peach pit, fresh citrus.  Nice, linear equilibrium here: this wine just cruises at the same wavelength from cork pop to last drop.  Good freshness, energy and intensity. We could have used a bit more grip and acidity but that is Chassagne Morgeot blanc.  In fact, this one enjoys the richness, fat and weight of a Chassagne Morgeot blanc without coming off as ponderous, flat, overly dense or heavy-footed as many do.  As measured by the yardstick of your typical Chassagne Morgeot blanc, this is quite refined.  A very good bottle.  And best of all: no bottle variability to be found with these bottles.  This was last bottle on the case, these were consistent and correct all the way through.  If I had additional bottles in the cellar I would plan on drinking these up over the next one to two years.
