Domaine Jean-Claude Ramonet, Chassagne-Montrachet Les Grandes Ruchottes 1er Cru 2007

Adventures in Wine, Daly City CA.

Ten years on.

Lemon yellow with an emerald sheen.  Streamers of flavor: meyer-lemon blossom, fennel frond, toasted yogurt and cordite.  At this stage, the high-toned citrusy fruit does not want to seem lavish.  Acupuncture finish: the name ‘Ruchottes’ is for the masses of rock that have fallen on the La Grande Montagne hill over time.  Now – 2020+.
