Ramonet Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru "Morgeot"

Ramonet Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru "Morgeot" 2012

Domaine Ramonet’s Morgeot wine comes from three neighboring vineyard parcels located near the Abbey of Morgeot, dating back to 864 A.D. It shows a heavier style of Chassagne-Montrachet, which refines over time but displays great freshness now. The Morgeot soil is composed of heavy red clay and limestone, which produces wines of robust and rich character.
