Now this is out where the big dogs eat

This was a christmas present, but I already own a bottle so I thought I would open it to have with our 5kg, organic, free-range chicken. I love Ramonet wines

Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2000, Ramonet

A dense, expressive stoniness to the nose. This smells very intense. There is a lovely apple pie fruit to it. It is ultimately classy, deep and racy but so refined. Yeah, I like this a lot. The palate has real weight but there is such a lively stoniness and bright acidity that it slips down a treat. Really complex and stylish fruit with brilliant complexity. It is incredibly long. I am really pleased I am decanting this because I feel it will blossom with air. Obviously a long and glorious future ahead of it, but it is rather a treat now.
