Very light racy and mineral. A dried hay and bramble quality, but slightly more energy and structure than other Chassagne rouge I’ve had. Nice drinking.

Complimented wild Mallard well. Do not see upside.

So Ramonet for breakfast on the way to New York for a burgundy tasting! Soft and well balanced. Layers of black cherries. Velvety tannins notes of barnyard must. Velvety!Yum!

Beautiful, sappy, piney and fresh for the warmth I associate with the vintage. Ramonet’s reds continue to impress me

This was fantastic! Awesome texture, well integrated oak. I'm guessing lots of it though did not come off that way.

Straightforward. Red fruits and some sap. Too much maquillage- in the form of new oak- employed to offset the difficulties of '13. Finish a bit clipped. Good effort, though. #ramonet #chassagnemontrachet #pinotnoir

Poulet frites and crunchy Ramonet Rouge is a great way to live. Fabulous dry, cranberry driven Pinot!

Here we've got an appellation who is best known for whites than red. Even though it is only a generic Chassagne "rouge" village from Ramonet, what I do appreciate the most in this kind of pinot noir is the straightforwardness of the fruit, a clean tannin, a lightness and pretty well-balanced oak, the happy simplicity - that is not the same as banality - of drinking a bottle alone without even realizing it. I really like so nice and well made wines that leaves me from first sip to last one such a genuine impression of vine to cellar to table squaring of the circle both at the nose and into my mouth. Want you imagine also the pairing though: the most delicious cornmeal mush (polenta) of my life with turnip greens and shavings of pecorino sardo. Wholemeal red corn (granturco rosso formenton otto file della Garfagnana e Valle del Serchio del Mulino di Piezza) from an old Mill that has now apparently closed doors forever because high quality and selectivity of production nowdays, sadly, doesn't pay the rent.
