Wine Critic Reviews for 2017 Ramonet Batard Montrachet

Appealing smoke and oyster shell aromas frame hazelnut, peach and pastry flavors in this complex, harmonious white. The luscious texture embraces a beam of acidity, keeping this defined and extending the finish. Smooth and balanced, this is tempting to drink now but will be even better in a year or two. Best from 2022 through 2032. 60 cases imported.

Wine Spectator | 97 WS
The 2017 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru unwinds in the glass with aromas of crisp yellow orchard fruit, acacia honey, fresh pastry, crushed mint, citrus oil and blanched almonds. On the palate, it's full-bodied, muscular and enveloping, with a deep and multidimensional core, lively acids and chalky structuring extract, concluding with a long and reverberative finish. While this is quite an open and expressive vintage chez Ramonet, the Bâtard will certainly reward some bottle age.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 95+ RP
(Domaine Jean-Claude Ramonet Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru White) Like the Chevalier, there is a touch of sulfur-induced skunkiness though it's not as strong as the aeration had more of a pronounced effect. There is excellent volume to the attractively refined, indeed even sleek, larger-scaled flavors that possess good levels of dry extract that also serves to buffer the firm acid spine shaping the beautifully long finale that delivers excellent depth. While the nose isn't especially attractive today, my rating offers the benefit of the doubt that it will eventually harmonize because otherwise there is much to like. (Drink starting 2029).
