2017 1er Cru Morgeot Domaine Henri Germain
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
The Chassagne Montrachet Morgeot offers a change in scenery following a Meursault dominated tasting. Mineral, pure and clean. A hint of vanilla but there is nothing overpowering from the oak. Crushed rocks. Fruit lingering in the background. Crisp and striking. L&S (Oct 2018)
*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.
The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Les Fairendes offers up pretty aromas of white flowers, citrus blossom, pear and peach, followed by a medium-bodied, satiny palate that's pure and elegant, underpinned by succulent acids. It's finer-boned than the Meursault bottlings but not quite as deep or intense. Rating: 89-91 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate(Jan 2019)
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.
