Feels like a wine from a mineral soil - lifted tannins in a keyed-up sort of way. At once quite supple and quite slatey - good fruit and length, carried by excellent tannins. Drinking range: 2017 - 2023 L&S (Nov 2014)

(from a small .51 ha monopole). A notably more elegant nose is also a bit more complex with its layered aromas of cassis, spice, tea and soft warm earth nuances. The relatively refined medium weight flavors display an attractive bead of minerality that continues onto the dusty, pure and balanced finish. If there’s a nit it’s that this presently possesses only average depth but the material is present such that this may add more. 2019+ Rating: 88-90 Allen Meadows, 2015)

Light crimson. Really quite sweet and raspberryish on the nose. Impressive palate weight. And very pure and fresh on the end. A very pleasing wine that is relatively evolved. Drinking range: 2016 - 2020 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - 2015)

Domaine Henri Germain

Jean-François Germain has been joined over the course of 2018 by his daughter Lucie - who is now helping to run this small (6.5ha) 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. New wood is used sparingly.
