Only a few producers use this vineyard, and certainly Ramonet’s Ruchottes are standout - often competing with neighboring Grands Crus. It is located East of “La Grande Montagne” or the hill close by, and owes its name to the loose rocks or “Ruchottes” which accumulated from the hill over time. It was the Domaine’s first purchase in 1930 and it contains some of the oldest vines in Ramonet’s stock; through  consistent replanting, this “Ruchottes” is of very high quality, with an opulent  texture and perfumy character.

Tasting the wine reveals concentration and abundance of dry extract that has few peers in white Burgundy. Generous oak is intertwined with notes of caramel and Indian spices, embedded in a fine texture and rich body. Vines were replanted in 1972.
