    ($80) Musky aromas of fresh peach, ginger, curry powder, wet stone and mint. Densely packed and juicy; sweet but firm. Quite powerful and penetrating for this cuvee, with lovely clarity and grip. Finishes long, sweet and full but without the heaviness of the year. Broad but not at all sloppy on the back. This has turned out very well. (I did not visit the Ramonets this spring because they were not ready to show their 2004s; unfortunately, shipment of their 2003 grand crus to New York, originally scheduled for August, was delayed until September, too late to be included in this issue.) .

    Rich and round, sporting apple and peach notes with spicy accents from oak. Soft and open, it's attractive now. 175 cases made.

    This is a classy wine that could pass for a ripe 2002 as the stylish, expressive and elegant white flower fruit aromas introduce precise, pure and punchy middle weight flavors that are very clean, bright and intense, especially on the wonderfully long finish. This is terrific by any standard but particularly so for the vintage and here's a wine that should benefit from 4 to 5 years in bottle.

    An elegant Chardonnay that plays things extremely close to the vest, exposing some high toned aromas of golden delicious, pear skins, honeysuckle, fresh cut wood and a touch of damp earth. The structure and impeded stoniness can be sensed w/ clarity on the finish, hinting at a lovely potential evolution. The most tightly wound and reserved wine of the bunch

Without a doubt, the Ramonet domaine is one of the masters of Chassagne-Montrachet. Now that the reins have been passed on to Noel and Jean-Claude (Andre Ramonet's sons), the domaine's wines have been significantly finer in terms of quality consistency. As Matt Kramer states in Making Sense of Burgundy, "this producer's Chassagnes are the wines against which the others are judged."
