2009 Ramonet Noel, Bourgogne Pinot NoirMar. 2012
‘Nomacorked’. This has a fresh but forward nose of dark red fruit with a mint-leaf impression too – quite like the Potel but with more depth and balance. The flavour is also quite forward and friendly, the acidity giving the impression of sweet and sour in combination with the fruit. In the mouth the impression is of roundness, and I have to say it’s rather delicious too. Far from the concentration of the Camille-Giroud or the Pataille, but more effortlessly drinkable today.

A plastic ‘Nomacork’. This has a fresh but forward nose of dark red cherries. The flavour is also quite forward and shows a sour cherry impression – certainly not sweet but refreshingly moreish. This has a very decent intensity and I absolutely love it.
2009 Ramonet Noel, Chassagne-Montrachet La BoudriotteNov. 2011
Cork, quite a long cork. Aromas of herbs and pure red fruits, eventually with a warm edge; there’s also the typical 09 top notes that are close alcoholic. Rather silky though the intensity grows quickly delivering a little texture in the finish – this is beautifully detailed but rather boisterous, delivering a whack of mid-palate flavour that couldn’t really be described as elegant, despite the lovely texture – but today I don’t need elegant, excellent will do and this fits the bill.
2009 Ramonet Noel, Chassagne-Montrachet Les CailleretsMay. 2011
It’s a high-toned if relatively tight nose. Lovely texture, minerality and a crescendo of intensity – this wine is an absolute honey!
2009 Ramonet Noel, Chassagne-Montrachet Les RuchottesMay. 2011
There’s a smoky edge to the nose – apparently characteristic – which frames slowly evolving and growing clean aromas. Full in the mouth but with a still growing intensity. This is very impressive wine indeed – eventually showing a little savoury note amongst the minerality.
2009 Ramonet Noel, Puligny-Montrachet Champs-CanetMay. 2011
High-toned aromas with flashes of interesting ripe fruits. Very silky and intense – lovely balance too. The sweet fruit at its core grows in intensity – super!
2009 Ramonet Noel, Bienvenues-Bâtard-MontrachetMay. 2011
High-tones and a hint of spearmint(!) Full and round again with that characteristic welling-up of intensity. Lithe and energetic – almost electric – wow!
2009 Ramonet Noel, Bourgogne ChardonnayMay. 2011
Round, understated aromas slowly evolve some pretty high-toned notes. The palate is the same but has a nice density – quite rich – a little more acidity would be appreciated by me, though but it’s still tasty wine.
2009 Ramonet Noel, Bâtard-MontrachetMay. 2011
Again high-toned, there’s a floral depth here and some lightly toasted bread. Rich and silky, indeed mouth-coating. There is impressive depth yet this wine remains light on its feet – some stony fruit in the finish. Love…
