Yeasty, creamy notes - this is still fermenting - just a touch of sweetness, juicy and pure with citrus and pineapple and lifted by fresh, mouth-watering acidity. Drinking range: 2016 - 2021 L&S (Nov 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.

There is a top nuance of matchstick to the toasted almond, acacia blossom and white orchard fruit aromas. The middle weight flavors are indisputably finer and more mineral-inflected as well before terminating in a balanced, cool, focused and solidly persistent finale. This is a classic Chevalières of finesse and refinement. 2019+ Rating: 88-91 Allen Meadows, (Jun 2015)

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.
