History of Domaine Ramonet
Founded in the late 1920s by Pierre Ramonet and his wife Simone, Domaine Ramonet began cultivating and producing wine on the family's properties in Chassagne-Montrachet. Since then, Domaine Ramonet has been a significant player in Burgundy, earning a top-notch reputation for its dedication to quality and tradition. The Ramonet family has maintained a deep connection to the land and terroir, especially in Chassagne-Montrachet, reflected in their exceptional wines.
Strict Focus on Quality over Quantity
The annual production varies, but the estate always aims to maintain the highest standards in their wines, resulting in a relatively limited production. One notable aspect of Domaine Ramonet's production methods is the meticulous handling of grapes. Grapes are handpicked, undergoing a strict selection process to ensure that only the finest grapes are used in production. This careful work yields wines of exceptional quality and purity, reflecting the terroir and vineyards in a highly authentic manner.
