A beautiful range of Beaune 1er Cru from the Late, Great Benoit Germain. Benoit managed to get a lot of concentration in his Pinot Noir. These wines have aged gracefully and they are succulent and savoury now. Rich and well balanced.

Description

A beautiful range of Beaune 1er Cru from the Late, Great Benoit Germain. Benoit managed to get a lot of concentration in his Pinot Noir. These wines have aged gracefully and they are succulent and savoury now. Rich and well balanced.

Benoit started working with his father François at the domaine in 1989, finally taking over responsibility in 1999. Benoit’s great, great, great grandfather started in Beaune with a négociant called Maison Poulet Père et Fils which he bought at the beginning of the 20th century. He further added Domaine de Saux (from which most of their Beaune vineyards came), the Château de Chorey and other vineyards too. The Château de Chorey and the Domaine de Saux were to be the dowry of a daughter who never married – in 1901 she became a nun at the Hospices de Beaune she was called Tante Berthe, so the Château and the vines in Beaune stayed in the family and were passed to Benoit’s grandfather.

The domaine exploits almost 17 hectares with vines in Beaune, Chorey, Pernand and even a little Meursault. All the wines have been worked in an organic way since 2001, conversions started in 1997/98. Benoit was one of the first (1995) to follow the path of lutte raisonée.
