Chassagne-Montrachet 2008, Bachelet-Ramonet
The Bachelet-Ramonet domaine, based in Chassagne, owns 13 hectares of vines including two grands crus. The wines feature regularly in the Guide Hachette but the domaine has not achieved much mind share with Burgundy experts. We tasted at the domaine in April 2011 and had some very amusing banter Alain Bonnefoy and his wife who own the estate. This Chassagne blanc starts on white flowers, peach and pear. Light citrus and pear on the palate. Long, fresh, medium body, refreshing. Another great example of the impressive 2008 vintage.
