Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    Javillier’s Bourgogne Oligocène is from the Puligny side of Meursault and therefore a more restrained style than the Forgets. Full of floral, citrus flavours, with a bright line of purity and a gentle sophisticated finish. Always one of the great value picks of the vintage.

    The 2018 Bourgogne Côte d’Or Cuvée Oligocène has a potent grass clipping and undergrowth nose that errs towards Sauvignon Blanc in style. The palate is nicely balanced with subtle tropical notes on the entry, lightly honeyed with hints of apricot on the finish. 2020 - 2024

    A more complex nose is comprised by notes of various white orchard fruit scents that are nuanced by floral, hazelnut and mineral reduction hints. There is a bit more volume to the appealing textured middle weight flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the solidly persistent finish. This is almost always excellent for its level and the 2018 version will be no exception. Drink 2023+ Outstanding Top value

    Pale lemon and lime. Pretty and stylish nose, more floral than Forgets with a natural personality, good length and just a trace of mineral acidity to support the finish.

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

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.
