Domaine Ramonet, Chassagne-Montrachet (villages) 2012

Ramonet Chassagne Montrachet 2012

Diageo Chateau & Estate, New York NY.

Pale and bright.  A limpid expression of Chassagne: lissome, sweeter tarragon notes and the usual, Ramonet-mint-archetype.  But not a lusty spearmint: less intense, more gently herbal, like pennyroyal.  Palpable semi-solidity without undue weight: asian pear, persian melon. Certainly has the volume of a premier cru.  Poised, stony cut – not as tensile as the ’10s, nor as edgy.  Cucumber-saline finish.  Unalloyed Chassagne.  Now – 2017+.
