Vacation Wines - 2014 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot, Jean-Claude Ramonet
2014 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot, Jean-Claude Ramonet
It is always a treat to drink a great bottle from Ramonet. There has been some ups and downs over the years, but when a bottle is up, it is a real treat.
The nose is a dream with purity and complexity in spades. There are stunning notes of candied lemons, butter biscuits, cap gun smoke, spices and cream. Very saline. Precise. Gorgeous.
The taste is creamy, finely tuned and long lasting with notes of matchbox, ripe lemons, sweet minerals and a touch of banana peel. Very, very fine. The finish goes on and on and on. I will wait 5+ years with my remaining bottles. A class act.
