2013 Limozin Domaine Henri Germain

Well-defined citrus fruit, lemony, grapefruity, fresh acidity and total sparkling purity. 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.
(from 80+ year old vines). Here the nose is riper if only slightly with its fresh and airy nose that mixes both white and yellow orchard fruit aromas that are trimmed in touches of mandarin orange and oak spice. There is a discreet minerality adding lift to the punchy and solidly well-detailed medium weight flavors that possess good mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in balanced and naturally sweet finale. 2019+ Rating: 88-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jun 2015)
Tangy, citrus, limey nose. Really quite chewy but with life and punch. Admirably complete. Drinking range: 2017 - 2023 Rating: 16.5+ Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 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.
