Henri Germain et Fils

Henri Germain et Fils is in Meursault, in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. The family operation owns or leases 19 acres, and its very limited production Meursaults and Montrachets have a cult following among French collectors. The domaine was founded in 1973 when Henri started making his own wine. Now his son Jean-Frederic has taken over the winemaking. Henri Germain produces the Premier Crus Meursaults Les Charmes and Les Perrieres, and the Premier Cru blanc Chassange-Montrachet Morgeot. Also produced are several village whites and reds, including the red monopole Meursault Clos des Mouches. Henri’s wife is from the Pillot family of Chassange, and another of his sons is Benoit Germain of Chateau de Chorey-les-Beaune. Clive Coates has written that “the Germains are always happy to let nature take its course. They don’t bottle for 18 months. This is a good source.”
