Probably the flashier Premier Cru from Chassagne
Ramonet has an unmistakable touch for sure
Quite toasty to start it opens up with time and temperature rising in the glass
Roasted cashew, wet rocks, flinty
Ferns and altogether a fresh undergrowth from rainforest
The intensity of this wine is sublime as well as the balance and the long after taste
This wine could defeat time for a long period

found some 18 Vergers yesterday so I decided to look in on 15. Makes sense to a wine guy. Herbal notes and a bit of Ramonet menthol, lean citrus fruit, expands on the palate and wakes the taste buds, all now standing at attention like soldiers at reveille. A lovely bottle with room to grow. — 16 days ago

Lemon, leek, lime, sage, dried pineapple and tangerine pith, jasmine and caperberry nose. Racy lemon pith and oils are rounded just slightly by green olive whisper, rich white grapefruit, snap pea and lemongrass. Seductive and fast!

Very nice villages level Chassagne, ripe apples, some lemom and a saline feel to it, straight and linear but with some depth, precise and clean, mineral and energetic, decent length, a nice 2017 with a domaine I really like. 91-92
Magnifique Villages, pommes et fruits blancs, citron aussi. Une bouche droite, assez lineaire mais avec une telle élégance et une belle classe, minéralité et saveurs franches et énergiques, finale d’une belle longueur, un beau 2017 sur un domaine que j’aime bien.

Always as good, spices on the nose, touch of liquorice, lots of ripe red fruit as well as on the palate, fresh and with some grip, nice length.
Toujours aussi bon, un nez épicé, réglisse un peu, du fruit rouge assez mur en quantité tout comme en bouche, suave et frais à la fois, belle longueur.

Had dinner with friends who love aged white Burgundy. As you can imagine there has been many setbacks over the years, this bottle makes up for all of the disappointments. I was amazed by the freshness on the nose and on the palate. Lemon, mature fruit flavors and wonderful life giving acid. ￼Amazing persistence on the finish. A wine of many gears. I truly get excited when I am fortunate to drink a magical bottle of aged white burgundy.￼ — 19 days ago
