The 2014 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru offers up notes of citrus zest, pastry cream, subtle noisette and a framing of new oak—the prelude to a wine that is notably more tight knit and unyielding than the Bienvenues. There’s lots of power and cut here, but so much is currently held in reserve, and cellaring will be essential to realize its full potential. Interestingly, one parcel of the Ramonet's holdings in Bâtard-Montrachet adjoins their parcel of Bienvenues, but the other parcel is in the middle of the vineyard on the border of Chassagne and Puligny, and perhaps that explains why these grands crus are generally so different. 2022 - 2045
Once again the nose displays some reduction though in this case it's "clean" in the sense that there is no associated funk and with air it reluctantly begins to reveal discreet notes of citrus, acacia blossom and soft pear. There is excellent volume to the delicious, caressing and sappy medium weight plus flavors that initially are rich to the point of being borderline soft but as the wine sits in the glass, it slowly begins to tighten up and become more precise on the beautifully persistent finish. I suspect that this will continue to tighten up if not actually shut down. In sum, this too is really quite lovely. Drink: 2022+
