Domaine Henri Germain et Fils Beaune “Bressandes” Premier Cru 2017

"This is not only quite firmly reduced but it seems flat with a hint of barnyard character that extends to the palate as well while also suffusing the mildly tough finish. This is a very odd showing for the vintage and I'm not sure what to make of it. Not Rated." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Henri Germain et Fils Chassagne-Montrachet Village Rouge 2017

"There is a whiff of barnyard on the moderately reduced aromas where the underlying fruit is suppressed by notes of earth and pepper can still be discerned. Here too there is good underlying tension to the slightly denser flavors that also reflect a certain rusticity and youthful austerity. At present the barnyard character is sufficiently subtle that it may not become overly pronounced but that is a guess." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Henri Germain Meursault Village “Clos des Mouches” Rouge 2017

R895.00 inc. VAT
"This also flirts with noticeable barnyard character on the red and dark berry fruit-scented nose. However, it does not extend to the palate of the energetic and well-detailed flavors that offer reasonably good depth and persistence. Again, at present the barnyard character is sufficiently subtle that it may not become overly pronounced but that is not a guarantee that it will remain a background element." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
