Robert Parker: "Since the domain Ramonet cult status, it has become fashionable to criticize his fault. Ostensibly they are not as prominent as they could be. You should not be subject to this way of thinking. Domain produces some of the best Chardonnay in the world. While some domains have only recently started to produce excellent wines, and other wines have always been the same excellent as wine Ramonet, the word «Ramonet» already carries a magical significance. The wines are great domain ".
