Like the Poruzot, still gassy and this gives a gunflint and smoke character. Fat and mineral, powerful and long. Classy. Really good tangy power on the lengthy finish.

While it is unlikely to be permanent there is enough reduction present to dominate the underlying fruit. By contrast there is lovely freshness and verve to the solidly concentrated medium weight flavors that are blessed with an abundance of dry extract that imparts a sappy texture to the clean, dry and admirably precise finale. This beautifully well-balanced effort should reward up to a decade of cellaring. 2021+

Jean-François Germain runs this small domaine. The Chassagne vineyards came through his mother, a Pillot, and Jean-François is married to François Jobard's daughter, so they are quite intertwined with some of our other producers. In terms of winemaking the Germains are always happy to let nature take its course, and in the vineyards they follow as natural a system of viticulture as possible. These are concentrated, tightly wound wines from one of Burgundy's coldest cellars. Slow to develop, they show wonderful crystalline purity.

This wine isn't currently part of a mixed case, but you can always browse our full selection of mixed cases here.
