Description

    Montrachet 1996
    Ramonet
    1spc, 1ssos
    Bottle (2)
    "The '96 Ramonet Montrachet is a monumentally scaled yet uncannily elegant and pure wine with a massive nose of limestone, citrus and white flowers of almost indescribable complexity followed by dense, very tight, beautifully nuanced flavors all wrapped in endless reserves of mid-palate sap. The backend displays simply astonishing persistence that stains the palate. Yet for all this expressiveness, it's immediately clear that only a very small portion of the wine's potential is being revealed. The acidity of the '96 vintage is pronounced yet there is more than enough sève to balance it. A genuinely great wine of power, finesse, detail and riveting class."
