Puligny-Montrachet Domaine Ramonet 2007

I've got a load of tasting notes to upload but there doesn't seem to be any time these days. I'm just back from an amazing jaunt to Northern California and work and life are all catching up with me. So on a quiet afternoon in the midst of Open madness, we decided to taste something nice.

Already there is depth to the gold, with edges of silver and lively brilliance.

Warm on the nose. Vanilla, toffee apple and chantilly cream wrapped around melon and pineapple fruit with a dusting of smoke.

Rich and mouth-filling on the palate. It develops from the centre of the tongue all the way out to the nooks and crannies. Nice balance between the wood and the fruit with a sharp pull of acidity from the very start that carries it all to the long finish. There's citrus and roasted melon fruit wrapped around that pull and then the faint echo of oak and toast. More air and the minerality begins to present itself. Complex stuff, though perhaps a little disjointed due to its youth (or vintage), but a really lovely drop and these remain the best '07 white Burgundies I've tasted.
