Presentation of the vineyard
Domaine Germain pere & fils is a family winery located in Saint-Romain. It all began in 1955 with Bernard Germain. At that time most of the vineyards were only in Saint Romain, but Bernard bought land in both Pommard and Beaune and in the Hautes côtes de Beaune area. All in all, 6 hectares of farmland were included. In 1976, Bernard's son Patrick came to his help and since 2009, Arnaud, Bernard's grandson, is also part of the winery. Arnaud has developed the sales and been the driving force behind the Maison Arnaud Germain, which expanded the range to Meursault, Volnay, Chambolle-Musigny and Puligny-Montrachet, which are now part of the portfolio of appellations.
A red color with purple shades reminding of pioneer flowers or the depths of certain red roses. The nose reminds of cherry and raspberry, but evolves towards black currants, licorice and some undergrowth with a spicy touch. A classic Burgundy to serve to taste-balanced dishes without exotic or too spicy notes such as grilled meat of pork fillet or lamb with a potato gratin, alternatively to pies or creamy Burgundy cheeses such as Époisses, Brillat-Savarin, Cîteaux or Soumaintrain.
