    Bright lime colour with a hint of gold on the edges. This is full of ripe fruit on the nose, with almost a hint of honeyed botrytis. A very ample wine with hints of toffee and orange in the mouth, gives a huge amount of pleasure and satisfaction on the finish. Quite simply lovely!

    The 2012 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is harmonious on the nose with scents of almond and chalk that are well-defined, but not intense at the moment. The palate has a lilting entry with nicely judged acidity. There are plenty of citric fruits accompanied by nectarine, orange rind and white peach, leading to a sophisticated yet understated finish that knows that it does not have to sing and shout to please. It errs toward what you might describe as an unpretentious, more commercially savvy Corton-Charlemagne without dispensing with the complexity and typicite one would expect. Superb.

    This is also quite aromatically restrained and it presently displays a hint of lactic character that may or may not dissipate quickly. To be sure it’s subtle and does not significantly detract from the overall sense of purity but it’s hard to predict how it may develop now that the wine has been bottled. Otherwise there is excellent volume to the round, powerful and concentrated medium weight plus flavors that possess a seductive texture where the ample minerality adds a sense of lift to the impressively long finish. As the description suggests this is a bit awkward and readers should note that my rating offers the benefit of the doubt that this will harmonize with cellar time. 92?/2019+

    When you smell this wine, you know why white burgundy is so special. It is refined and restrained but has purity of citrus fruit allied with that gentle creaminess from oak and lees and a certain stony edge. Intense, dry, full of energy but so easy to drink thanks to that intense refreshment factor. Drink 2018-2028

    Harvested on the 18th September. Les Pougets. This is pure straight with lovely crystalline fruit. Good tension and bright minerals woven in the palate to a somewhat savoury long finish. It’s not really rich, but rather it homes in on purity and vigour. A lovely example. Very fine. From 2017

Domaine Patrick Javillier

Visits to Patrick Javillier’s cellars are always a delight. His enthusiasm and passion for his subject and in particular the wines of Meursault are second to none. Like all great winemakers he has his own views as to how wines should be made and the benefits of ageing both in cask and bottle and everything is thought out meticulously with this in mind. He makes wonderfully textbook wines, which for us are the most perfect reflection of the wines of Meursault. His wines have the natural exuberance that one expects from this the most exotic of the three famous white Côte de Beaune villages, whilst having a complexity of texture that only the very finest vineyards and producers ever seem to produce.

Corton-Charlemagne

As legend goes, Charlemagne, king of the Franks, ordered Chardonnay planted in the vineyard of Corton during his reign in the 8th century so as he would not stain his light-coloured beard during moments of great thirst. This may be mere romantic fallacy, but what cannot be denied is the exceptional quality of this Grand Cru appellation in Aloxe Corton in the Cote de Beaune.
