Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, January 2019

    The most generous of the cuvées in the Javillier stable. This is a real mille-feuille of flavours, with flavours of fresh fruit salad and clotted cream. Very exuberant with a touch of vanilla and oak, it retains a soft freshness on the finish.

    Soft wood nuances envelop the layered aromas of hazelnut, citrus and spiced apple. There is outstanding punch to the stony and impressively dense medium-bodied flavors that possess a caressing yet powerful texture, all wrapped in a sneaky long finish that is not quite as complex. With that said, this always requires extending aging to show its full potential so more depth is likely to gradually develop. Outstanding. Top value. Drink 2025+.

    Score: 91-93

    Bright straw-yellow. Ineffable high notes of brown spices and spearmint lift sexy stone fruit aromas. Wonderfully ripe and intense, conveying terrific inner-mouth perfume and tension to its citrus, stone fruit and spice flavors. Finishes saline and gripping, with terrific class and slow-building length. As tactile as this wine is, it stands out for its energy and light touch. This will be a village wine to seek out.

Producer

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

Meursault

Meursault is the first great white wine area that one stumbles upon on leaving Beaune. Unlike other white dominated appellations in Burgundy, Meursault has no grand cru vineyards. It nonetheless has significant flair and power which make up for this deficiency. Indeed, if tasted blind some of these wines could even surpass other Burgundian grand crus. They are no fainting daisies. This may partially be due to Meursault's lower water table which enables the roots to delve deep in the soil picking up many trace minerals and which further stresses the vines. In addition, the cellars are more profound and cooler, enabling long fermentations, which increase complexity and longevity. Some interesting red wines are also made.
