En Primeur | Patrick Javillier 2019

Retirement for the wonderfully charismatic Patrick has been a long process but now the domaine is run by his daughter Marion and son-in-law Pierre-Emmanuel Lamy. That said, he is an ever-present figure, popping up around the estate, helping out and gently guiding wherever he can. The next generation consider themselves so fortunate to be able to draw on his 45 years of experience. The domaine’s wines are delightfully detailed expressions of the creamy fruit flavours typical of great Meursault. They will give youthful pleasure and also have the ability to age in bottle. The two Bourgogne’s Blancs were recently re-labelled as Bourgogne Côte d’Or. Patrick was a driving force behind the creation of this new appellation.

Pierre-Emmanuel took the decision to pick quite early, starting on 6th September, as it was crucial to preserve the freshness and acidity in the wines. Marion describes their 2019s as having a strong sense of terroir and identity. The small crop, healthy fruit at harvest time and stable levels of acidity in the berries have all contributed to this. The domaine is very proud of this vintage indeed.

Please note: due to high demand, online purchases of 2019 Burgundies are limited to 1 case of each wine. For more information please contact your account manager or wine@goedhuis.com

    The grapes for this cuvée are grown on the Volnay side of Meursault. It is a generous Meursault-esque style of Bourgogne Blanc with creamy aromas and hints of apricot and mango. Wonderfully approachable, balanced by a bright bite of freshness on the finish.

    Gentle, fine and immediate with lovely, smooth, lemon and wildflower notes and a neat prim finish.

    Javillier’s Bourgogne Oligocène is from the Puligny side of Meursault and therefore a more restrained style than the Forgets. Hints of quince and jasmine, this is gloriously harmonious and feels like a Puligny. Graceful and very pure.

    Deeper and more succulent and layered than Forgets with honey and faint coconut notes which bring exoticism and depth. Superb balance, genuinely racy and pretty, this is a genuine mini-Meursault and it is rather forward, too.

    A touch more yellow to the colour. Solid, impressively rich fruit, but not hot in any way and with excellent acidity. Full, balanced and delicious. Clearly a mini-Meursault. Excellent length. 4 stars

    Protected from the spring frosts this year, this is a superb cuvée. Attractive scents of warm butter and freshly baked bread. This has a silky volume which caresses the palate and a fine degree of concentration. A delicious example of the appellation of Meursault.

    As always, this is a more angular and less fleshy wine with more edge and grunt. There is some power here and also some rocky grip and less overt fruit and it will open up over time, but TdM has the edge now and certainly for the next year or two.

    No new wood is used on wines with more clay in the soil, as is the case here. Pretty pale lemon colour, not much more weight of fruit than the Bourgogne Oligocene on the nose, but with an extra intensity and attractive crystalline acidity behind. 3 stars

    A combination of two lieux dits: Les Clous and Les Crotots. This blend always balances the racy freshness of fruit from the higher slopes of Les Clous with the rich creamy generosity produced by Les Crotots. Quite a structured and intense Meursault. A touch of bitter orange on the attack evolves to reveal the creamy Crotots characters on the finish. Thought provoking and mouth-watering.

    Paler colour, mixed white fruit on the nose, actually quite discreet. More interest and complexity on the palate, ripe apple notes, some pear too, a little softer at the finish than Tillets. Plenty going on. 3 stars

    Always a star in the Javillier cellar, this is a beauty in 2019. Harmonious and elegant, with hints of honeysuckle. It is very pure in style, with a drive and energy reminiscent of classic Puligny. Great length and massively rewarding. 4 stars
