2015 1er Cru Bressandes Domaine Henri Germain
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
A lovely rich Beaune, all the weight and mass in the mouth of 2015, yet supple with just enough tannic grip. Fine tannins filled with fruit. Drinking range: 2019 - L&S (Nov 2016)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
A restrained, elegant and beautifully well-layered nose combines notes of red and dark berries, violet and plum nuances. The sleek, delicious and vibrant medium-bodied flavors exude a fine bead of minerality on the balanced, firm and persistent finish that also displays a hint of bitter cherry. Note that this should be approachable after only a few years but should also reward up to a decade of aging. Drinking range: - 2023 Rating: 90-92 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Apr 2017)
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.
