Henri Germain et Fils – Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot
Out of stock
This Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot wine from Henri Germain et Fils is the only white wine of this producer that does not come from Meursault. It has received good scores from various critics: the 2008 vintage was given a score of 90 by Vinous Antonio Galloni.
Aromas of mayflower, acacia, and honeysuckle blend with verbena and hazelnut and in some cases toast or fresh butter. This wine boasts a profound minerality (flint). Age brings in notes of honey or ripe pear. Rounded and often opulent, its attack is instantaneous.
On the palate, fleshiness is matched by mellowness, and both are equally persistent
Its opulence and power make it an ideal partner for delicate fine white meats such as poultry or veal in sauce. Fish, either in well-spiced couscous or in Asian dishes such as curries or stir-fries, are also well-suited. Salmon, in itself highly aromatic, harmonizes particularly well. The Premiers Crus will readily complement crawfish, lobster, or even cooked fattened goose liver (foie gras).
Serving temperature : 12 to 14 °C.
