2018 Domaine Ramonet Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru

SKU #1555176 97 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The Bâtard is produced from three parcels, all on the Puligny side. This iconic wine in the portfolio is striking above all for its elegance. There is a graceful beauty to the ripe apple and apricot fruit with notes of hazelnut, white flowers, and a well-integrated bit of spice and butter from the cask ferment and 18 months of aging, although nothing is overdone here. The wine is admirable precisely because it has less butter and fat than some Bâtards show, even in 2018. There is impressive length here, but absolutely no heaviness. Masterful. Drinking Window 2021 - 2071. (CC) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Slightly riper aromas include those of white and yellow peach, quinine, plenty of floral and citrus hints plus a deft touch of wood. There is fine volume to the caressing yet powerful medium weight plus flavors that coat the palate with dry extract while displaying outstanding length on the very dry bitter lemon zest finish that also possesses enough warmth to mention. Remarkably, this is somewhat finer than the BBM, which is not usually the case. Patience strongly suggested. Inner quote mark (6/2021)
