The 2014 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Vergers reveals a complex bouquet of pear, white peach, hazelnut and wet stones. On the palate, the wine is taut and precise, with lovely energy and sap underpinning its glossy, supple attack. This was tasted side by side with the 2015 rendition, and the contrast was interesting: while Ramonet's higher appellation 2015s have nice energy and freshness, the wines lead with their generous textures; with the 2014s, the order of appearance is reversed. (WK)
There is a whiff of matchstick character to the ripe but cool and restrained notes of resin, citrus and pear-scented nose. The rich, caressing and intense middle weight flavors possess excellent mid-palate density while delivering fine depth and length on the well-balanced finale. This is clearly built-to-age but in contrast to the Chaumées, it should be approachable after only 4 to 5 years of bottle age.
A silky, caressing white, boasting peach, butterscotch and lemon cake flavors. Shows fine balance and harmony, with a fresh lift of acidity on the long finish. Drink now through 2023.
