“I have been saying it for years but I will say it again: if you don’t know these wines, you should because the quality is just too good to ignore. The style is intensely classic…” Allen Meadows
In recent weeks we have had many insightful talks with some friends who are very serious and knowledgeable Burgundy collectors and may have tasted more wines than we have. Interestingly they all brought up the same domaine when talking about Chardonnay - Domaine Henri Germain which is from Meursault, and all commented that Henri Germain had left a memorable impression in their life of drinking. Besides praises from our collector friends, wine critic Allen Meadows had also described Henri Germain wines to be “intensely classic” and it have received lots of admiration from other Burgundy producers such as Olivier Lamy, Thierry Pillot, Benjamin Leroux and Bruno Clair over the years.
The style of Henri Germain wines are traditional, with little new oak influence in which their winemaker Jean-François Germain insists to remain at a level between 20-30%. The wines also enjoy optimal condition of aging from one of the coolest cellars in Burgundy, allowing their wines to develop slowly and beautifully.
