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.

The nose is like that of the Morgeot but with an extra twist of herbs. This is also rich but with a mineral vein that offers counterpoint and balance. I think this is lovely – a good lingering flavour too…
2008 Gagnard Jean-Noël, Chassagne-Montrachet La BoudriotteDec. 2009
From within Morgeots – 2002 was the first ‘separation’ from the Morgeots cuvée. Aromas of herbs and flowers, high-toned and a little cream. Very nice texture. Clearly a wine of concentration, but a concentration that slowly creeps up on you – really impressive flavour in the mid-palate. Super.
2002 Ramonet Noel, Chassagne-Montrachet La BoudriotteNov. 2004
Medium, medium-plus cherry red colour, shading to purple. The nose still has sweet medium-toast oak in the ascendant but below is blue skinned fruit – takes about 30 minutes for the oak to fade. The palate is a blast, ripe high toned fruit, really super acidity and plenty of furry tannin. The finish is still slightly bitter – but this wine is fun, fun, fun – with a serious side. Less full with food, but very good.
