A freshness to the nose. The oak is not prominent. There is more creaminess here than the village but still defined by the wonderful acidity that gives it a lift. Super tension too and a lovely citrus pep to the core. Great minerality too keeping it clean and bright - but that leaner fruit is key and nicely pushing. It has volume and texture but serious drive too. A classy Chevalières from Henri Germain. L&S (Oct 2018)

An airier and cooler and nose offers up notes of white flower, pear, soft wood and citrus where the latter can also be found on the attractively textured and lightly mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess excellent delineation and excellent intensity on the sappy and notably dry bitter lemon-inflected finish. This stylish effort is an understated wine of finesse. Drinking range: 2024 - Rating: 90-92 Allen Meadows, 2019)

The 2017 Meursault Les Chevalières wafts from the glass with notes of lemon oil, tart green orchard fruit, white flowers and almond paste. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, taut and incisive, with excellent concentration, a tangy structuring line of acidity and a long finish. This is an intense, flinty Chevalières that will develop beautifully in the cellar. 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.
