2017 Domaine Henri Germain
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
This comes from 7 different parcels throughout the village. The nose suggests this might be a leaner style of Meursault. On entry there are notes of ripe green apple and pear along with more exotic fruit. The wine is brimming with tension and energy - the buttery smoothness is not evident at this stage. Good concentration to the juice. More muscle than fat but a wonderful 'glide'. 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.
(from 6 lieux-dits, including Vireuils, Peutes Vignes, Moulin à Judas, Clos du Cromin, Dressoles and Les Pellans). A classic Meursault nose features notes of hazelnut, pear and apple compote, acacia blossom and a discreet hint of wood. The sleek, detailed and intense middle weight flavors exude a subtle minerality that adds a bit of lift to chiseled and energetic finish. This needs to add a bit of depth but it’s really very pretty and should age well. Drinking range: 2023 - Rating: 89-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jun 2019)
Hailing mainly from parcels in Vireuils, Les Pellans, Le Cromin and Au Moulin Judas, the 2017 Meursault Village offers up aromas of green orchard fruit, mandarin oil, dried white flowers and toasted hazelnuts. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with a satiny attack, excellent concentration and incisive acids, displaying excellent structural tension and concluding with a saline finish. It's a classically balanced Meursault that marries texture and cut. Rating: 90-92 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.
