The Bâtard-Montrachet vineyard is located East and beneath Montrachet, at an altitude of 785-825 feet. Its name has a very funny legend, when the Lord of Montrachet was depicted as a knight who had a child bâtard or bastard out of wedlock. The most logical explanation must lay with the fact that this vineyard is located underneath Montrachet, thus of lower rank.
Ramonet’s Bâtard is one of the most notorious wine of the Domaine. It is produced from brown limestone soils which are deeper and more clayey at the bottom of the slope. The limestone rocks give it refinement and acidity while the clay provides its dense and powerful character. It exhibits restrained but elegant notes of pain grillé, orchard fruit of citrus and apple, with gorgeous purity, minerality and a stunning length that ends in an amazingly intense finish. Recommended to serve after 5 to 7 years of aging, up to 20 years. Vines were planted in 1967.
