The fantastic, centrally-located cru of Poruzots gets the usual underrated Germain treatment of old and new oak. The results are classic aromas and flavors of hazelnut and pain grillé, along with a touch of quinine that's generally only encountered in the finest young Meursault. If you're a fan of the old François Jobard Poruzots, this will be sure to please. When last tasted in May, 2022, this wine immediately impressed as being a palpable step up from the energetic and charming Germain 2018 lieux-dits in its complexity, both in aromas and flavors. There's more weight on the palate (to be expected), and the overall first impression is one of a wine that might be further along in its maturation; however, the correct read is that this is a 1er Cru that's more flattering to drink now yet promises more in the years to come.
