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.
Classically styled Meursault as we know and love it with plenty of buttery richness and savoury wheatmeal flavour, but all allied to deliciously succulent ripe orchard fruit and crackling vibrant acidity. Top quality white Burgundy. Rating: 92 www.thewinegang.com (Jan 2016)
(from 6 lieux-dits, including Moulin à Judas, Clos du Cromin, Dressoles and Les Pellans). This too is everso mildly exotic on the ripe nose that exhibits notes of peach, apricot, floral and hazelnut scents that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is good verve to the naturally sweet medium-bodied flavors that finish with notably better depth on the clean, dry and lingering finish. This should drink well young if desired. 2018+ Rating: 87-89 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jun 2015)
