We are very excited to present an amazing Single Owner Ramonet Collection we recently picked up.
Ramonet crafts some of the best white wines on the planet. Their Montrachet is claimed to be unequalled and we have 8 vintages in stock!
"Sooner or later most white burgundy lovers make the pilgrimage to the village of Chassagne-Montrachet and pay a visit to the Domaine Ramonet. Legendary wines frequently emerge from these cellars and for that reason, only the Domaine de la Romanee-Conti's Montrachet sells for a higher price than that of Ramonet." - Robert Parker
Our sales team was out for dinner a few weeks ago and we cracked a bottle of Ramonet Chassagne Montrachet Les Ruchottes 2010. It was glorious: lemon oil, crush rocked, and beautiful white flowers. It got better and better as the night went on. The last sip about 4 hours later was mind blowing.
A few vintage highlights from our owner who has had an incredible amount of Ramonet in his lifetime:
- 2009’s are ready, in a perfect drinking place and spectacular.
- 2015 is a rockstar vintage these are pop and pour ready. The Batard and BBM are pretty close to the Montrachet standard, but less than a third of the price.
- 2007 Montrachet is one of the best ever releases and starting to drink well now.
- 2008 Montrachet Magnum – GRW 99 points

2008 Ramonet Batard Montrachet
A restrained but stylish nose of pain grillé, citrus blossom and apple combines with understated, pure and refined medium full-bodied flavors that culminate in a stunningly intense finish that displays a good deal more minerality than is typical for Bâtard. This is still very primary yet oozes class and refinement but even so it will clearly require a few years in bottle before it's really ready for prime time. In particular, I really like the overall sense of balance and harmony and this should eventually be quite special - BH94
2015 Ramonet Batard Montrachet
In the same fashion as the BBM there are soft notes of wood toast and petrol that set off the ripe and overtly ripe but not really exotic aromas of both white and yellow orchard fruit that flash background spice and citrus nuances. The wood is more prominent on the palate though there is so much concentration and sappy dry extract that the big-bodied flavors should have no difficulty ultimately integrating it. Interestingly, and has been the case in several recent vintages of this wine, it is no less refined than the BBM if a bit more broad-shouldered. Good stuff with sneaky good length and this too has most impressive underlying reserves that should permit it to also age effortlessly. - BH95
2011 Ramonet Bienvenues Batard Montrachet
In much the same fashion as the Champs Canet, generous but not dominating wood slowly fades into the background with air to allow the honeysuckle, citrus and ripe pear scents to take center stage. There is good volume and verve to the attractively, even seductively textured medium weight flavors that possess really lovely intensity along with fine acid support on the strikingly persistent finish. In the classic mode of a fine Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet this isn't particularly powerful or concentrated but rather it is a wine of harmony and grace albeit one with terrific potential. . - BH94
2007 Ramonet Montrachet
In contrast to the incredibly backward Bâtard, the Montrachet is somewhat more open and accessible with a soaring nose of floral, citrus, orange peel, spice and a suitably discreet touch of oak yet as impressively broad as it is, it is completely evident that there is plenty in reserve. This is also true of the almost painfully intense and focused medium plus weight flavors that possess ample amounts of extract that buffer the very firm acid spine on the hugely long finish. While it should not be a surprise, given that not only is this Montrachet but a Ramonet Montrachet at that, don't open any of these anytime soon. The '07 version is not ever going to be one of the power vintages for this storied wine but I suspect that it will take its rightful place among the greats but only in time.....and that time isn't soon. Patience absolutely required. Drink: 2019+ - BH97
2011 Ramonet Montrachet
The strikingly complex, cool and reserved nose of mostly citrus, stone, floral and white orchard fruit aromas still displays plenty of wood that has not yet been integrated but the density is certainly here to allow that to happen even though it may require 3 to 5 years to do so. In the context of the 2011 vintage this is a superbly well-concentrated wine as the imposingly scaled flavors are a breathtaking combination of size, weight, tension and borderline painful intensity. Despite all of the volume, there is absolutely no heaviness, indeed the acid support is such that this remains impeccably well-balanced on the hugely long and palate staining finish. While it is of course still in the early days for the vintage this is absolutely a strong candidate for the wine of the vintage - BH97
