We have a decent parcel of Domaine Henri Germain arrived earlier this week and picked up a bottle of of their Meursault Les Charmes 1er Cru 2011 to taste which we were very impressed by their traditional, classic and almost hedonistic style which is so unique and worthy of everyone's taste buds to give this Domaine a try!
For those that are less familiar with the name Domaine Henri Germain, it is actually widely appreciated by Burgundians as one of the most classic Meursault with top quality. It attracts great demand from wine collectors all over the world and is a rare wine in trade nowadays. 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. A few words from Burghound’s Allen Meadows that shows his appreciation for their wines -
“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
We urge you to secure this when you see the name of Henri Germain in any wine offer, especially when it is from a marvelous vintage such as Vintage 2014! This is an excellent opportunity to secure a few bottles while the price remains approachable -
Domaine Henri Germain Meursault Les Charmes 1er Cru 2014 HK$850 per bottle, 24 bts available 91-94 pts Allen Meadows “Sweet Spot Outstanding” A beautifully layered nose combines notes of pear, white peach, soft wood and honeysuckle aromas. The gorgeously satin-textured flavors possess a palpable sense of volume as the mid-palate is blessed with an abundance of palate coating dry extract that once again does a fine job of buffering the moderately firm acidity on the focused yet exceptionally rich finale that displays a wisp of minerality. This beauty is pretty much textbook Charmes.
