    A Bourgogne from the Puligny side of Meursault and thus a more vibrant chiselled style than the Forgets. Full of bright lemon and lime fruits, this is racy and appealing, leaving the palate wonderfully refreshed.

    Score: 88-89

    Pale straw-gold. Ripe yellow peach, ginger, white flowers and a honeyed nuance on the nose. A step up in fruit sweetness from the Cuvée des Forgets and also showing more obvious balance in the early going. Finishes fruity and persistent, avoiding the dryness of the Cuvée des Forgets.

    Patrick Javillier’s Bourgogne Côte d’Or ‘Cuvée Oligocène’ is a sure-fire winner. It’s particularly fine in 2017, a lovely vintage for whites. The appellation Bourgogne Côte d’Or is a new one, only established in 2017, and it allows growers to blend across Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits terroirs but retain the Côte d’Or regional descriptor on the label. Javillier’s ‘Cuvée Oligocène’ is made from vineyards around the southern part of the Côte de Beaune. It has an intriguing nose, with some violet and almond detail. Quicksilver in the mouth, it flows fast and fresh, and may be light-bodied but has no lack of flavour. A zippy acid line cuts through a little oak richness on the palate. Tense and vital, it punches well above its weight. So drinkable, it couldn’t fail to seduce. This would be highly versatile with food, but I’d happily drink a glass standing in a bar, anticipating a good meal to come.

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.

Region

Bourgogne

This blanket regional appellation can apply to wines throughout Burgundy (60% of the area's production) as long as they comply with regulations relating to grape type, yield and alcohol content. Reds and roses are from Pinot Noir or Gamay. Whites are Chardonnay. They are usually the most straightforward of the Burgundy wines, and as a result are the least expensive and the most approachable upon release. In the hands of a more serious producer these can represent exceptional value and quality. The wines are made with the same care and attention to detail as their grander wines. However, they may not qualify for a village or communal appellation because the vines are too young or the vineyard area is outside the appellation boundary.
