Much more advanced in terms of stage of evolution when I tasted - this was already racked. A bit of sweet spice on the nose, something slightly muscaty (attractive), very ripe and round with a nutty richness in the middle. Harmonious and round, quite relaxed, with a touch of salinity at the end. These vines are at the level of les Caillerets, on the road to Santenay. L&S (Jan 2014)

(from the climat of Fairendes). A broad-based nose is comprised of petrol, pear, white peach and mildly exotic apricot hints. There is excellent richness to the sappy medium-bodied flavors that possess good mid-palate concentration and solid dry extract levels that impart a suave mouth feel on the lengthy and energetic if ever-so-slightly bitter finish. 2017+ Rating: 89-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jun 2014)

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.
