2011 1er Cru Morgeot Domaine Henri Germain
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Fatter than the Meursault Charmes as usual, but more closed yet. Opulent but the fruit needs to come out. But the fleshy, almost chewy mouthful is there, really eatable, and it opens up well in ths gourmand style on the finish. L&S (May 2017)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or buy 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified (as a full pack) to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Relatively rich with lemon character. Finely delineated. Lots of chew and restraint. 2016-2023 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com

Domaine Henri Germain
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.
