Outstanding. Here there are no such reductive notes with its pure and elegant nose that offers up notes of essence of spiced pear, citrus and acacia blossom scents. Beautifully delineated, intense and vibrant middle weight flavors possess a notably finer mouth feel while exhibiting excellent persistence on the dry and youthfully austere finale. This will also require at least moderate patience. 91-93 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 71
Only 108 bottles of the Henri Germain Meursault Premier Cru Charmes 2016 shipped to Australia. Without a doubt one of the truly great examples of this vineyard. It is invariably tightly wound, holding on to a certain nervosity as it develops. In other words, it’s not your stereotypical example. The youngest vines here are 35 years old and Germain’s six parcels cross both the lower and upper parts of the vineyard, though mostly at the top of the climat abutting the Puligny 1er Crus.
