Germain’s small parcel (0.25 hectares) of 35-year-old vines is sited in the upper part of Le Poruzot Dessus, under the Narvaux terroir, and was inherited from Germain’s father-in-law, François Jobard (of Domaine François/Antoine Jobard). Yes, Antoine Jobard is Jean-François's brother-in-law and also his next-door neighbour in Les Poruzots. Interesting then, to be able to compare these two examples, both shipped by Bibendum.
Poruzots is a fascinating terroir. It’s at the part of the Premier Cru slope where the aspect begins to turn towards the east, and it tends to produce quite earthy wines. The style reminds me a little of Limozin, but with more depth and layers. – Bibendum, Importers
“Aromas of peach, pear and orange oil mingle with nuances of clear honey and fresh pastry in an expressive bouquet, introducing the 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Poruzots, a medium to full-bodied, layered and textural wine that's concentrated and lively but deceptively enveloping, concluding with a mineral finish.” 92-95 points, William Kelly, The Wine Advocate
“A ripe, attractively fresh and well-layered nose offers up notes of various white orchard fruit that includes a hint of melon, acacia blossom and lemon zest that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is a really lovely mouthfeel to the punchy and reasonably concentrated medium-bodied flavors that possess evident power before terminating in a saline, succulent and mineral-inflected finish.” 90-92 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound
