Flint and smoke on the nose. This re-appears on the creamy palate along with oak and toast. The oak lends itself well to the stone fruit flavour. It has good density and warmth. There is a vein of acidity throughout that keeps it light on its feet. A fine Poruzots. L&S (Oct 2018)

(from a .25 ha parcel). Strong petrol notes suffuse the mildly exotic aromas of white peach and lychee nut. Here too there is very good size, weight and power to the equally muscular flavors that coat the palate with sappy dry extract while delivering impressive complexity on the driving finish. What is even more impressive is that despite the considerable size, weight and punch, this retains a certain refinement. Good stuff that is built-to-age.

Offering up aromas of pear, honeycomb, mint and dried white flowers, the 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Poruzots is medium to full-bodied, rich and ample, with tangy acids, chewy dry extract and good concentration, concluding with a long, precise finish that belies the precocious quality of the site, typically the ripest of Germain's premiers crus. Rating: 91-93 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.
