2012 Chevalières Domaine Henri Germain
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Tasted before racking, showing beautifully, lots of body and richness, a little point of sweetness, lots of energy and an engaging juicy spice. L&S (Jan 2014)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
An ultra-fresh nose offers up cool and airy aromas of citrus, white peach, pear and acacia blossom. There is good concentration to the appealingly textured middle weight flavors that are built on a base of firm minerality, all wrapped in a solidly persistent and more complex finish. This is a lovely effort and worth a look. 2018+ Rating: 88-91 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.
