Meursault 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Rouge

Domaine Henri Germain, Meursault 1er Cru, Clos des Mouches, Rouge 2019

RRP TBA

This is from a 0.5ha walled monopole a stone’s throw from Santenots, planted with Pinot in 1949 – so certainly alternative. It’s a delicious, intensely perfumed Pinot with purple notes of lavender and a supple, smooth, rounded palate, wafting airily to a scented finish with a light savoury bite.
