Ramonet Montrachet 2009 750mL


Revisiting the 2009 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru for the first time in over a year, I was delighted to see that it is continuing to drink very well, opening in the decanter and glass with a lovely bouquet of buttered apples, pastry cream, pear, popcorn and fresh mint, its new oak nicely integrated. On the palate, the wine is ample but tightly coiled at the core, with a glossy, broad attack and chalky grip on the long, precise finish. This shows none of the heaviness that afflicts some of the 2009 white Burgundies and should make for quite dramatic drinking over the next handful of years.
