Origin France, Burgundy
District Côte d'Or

Village Meursault

Vineyard Limozin

The Limozin feels more dense - there is a warming rich concentration of fruit and oak on the palate. The tongue is tingled by the evident acidity. The mineral frame works well with the green fruit and stone fruit flavours. Well balanced and pleasing. Super precision and succulently juicy. Long, glycerol coated finish. L&S (Oct 2018)

(from 80+ year old vines below Genevrières). This too is textbook Meursault with its hazelnut and floral suffused nose that displays notes of white peach and pear. There is good richness and intensity to the medium-bodied flavors that possess solid complexity and length on the balanced finish where once again a hint of bitter lemon appears. This is less mineral-driven than the Chevalières but offers more mid-palate density and succulence. A qualitative choice but both wines are excellent even if they’re very different from one another. Drinking range: 2025 - Rating: 90-92 Allen Meadows, 2019)

Aromas of pear, fresh mint, beeswax and subtle spice introduce the 2017 Meursault Le Limozin, a medium to full-bodied wine that's broader and more silky-textured than the regular Meursault Village, its voluptuous but controlled attack segueing into a concentrated mid-palate and stony finish. Again, this is beautifully balanced in its different stylistic register. 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.
