Montrachet, Domaine Ramonet 2013
**Note: from a .26 ha parcel in Puligny**
This is also notably reserved but aggressive swirling eventually liberates the densely fruited and noticeably minty nose that is composed by notes of white peach, pear, honeysuckle, wood and citrus hints. As is also typical, this large-scaled, intense, concentrated and overtly powerful effort is clearly bigger, richer and more imposing than the Chevalier but in 2013 I would describe the palate impression as even more refined than usual as it's taut and focused rather than simply massive. The complexity is already amazing as is the strikingly good persistence of the palate staining and beautifully well-balanced finish. And again like the Chevalier this is an exercise in harmony and grace that should enable this monument in the making to age effortlessly for years to come.

The 2013 Montrachet Grand Cru is a beauty, opening in the decanter and glass with a complex bouquet of white flowers, Meyer lemon, honey and ripe pear, framed by light reduction and nicely integrated new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, supple and expansive, with a broad but weightless attack, incredible purity and superb focus through the long, detailed finish. This is an elegant, open-knit Montrachet, and one of the high points of the 2013 white Burgundy vintage. 2018 - 2030
