Ramonet Bienvenue Bâtard-Montrachet

Ramonet Bienvenue Bâtard-Montrachet 2011

The grapes for this wine are grown in the Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru vineyard, a region in the Côte de Beaune famous for Chardonnay. It is named for the serfs who welcomed gifts of lower-altitude vineyard parcels from their Lords (Bienvenue means “welcome” in French). The clay and limestone soil in this area produce wines with clean stone fruit and green apple flavors, with an elegant mineral structure and lasting finish.
