Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    Located on the mid-slope, this lieu dit’s name may refer to the old quarry in the commune. Whether true or not, this cuvée always has a fine central mineral core, which is appealingly coated with creamy layers of butter, and tropical fruits. Bright and generous.

    The 2018 Meursault Clos du Cromin has a well defined, quite mineral-driven bouquet with fleeting touches of yellow flower and nectarine. The palate is saline on the entry, a twist of sour lemon livening things up, although I feel it needs a little more weight and girth on the finish. Otherwise, this is a fine Meursault. 2021 - 2028

    An attractively layered and ripe nose features notes of roasted nut, fresh white-fleshed fruit and a floral whiff. There is outstanding volume to the seductive but punchy medium-bodied flavors that aren't as mineral-inflected but do offer better power and body on the solidly complex and lingering finish. This is an excellent Meursault villages and well worth checking out. Drink 2025+ Outstanding Top value

    Pale lemon colour. This is the lighter end of Meursault but there is still good fruit at the back and a little nip of energy. The fruit is just correctly ripe, and persists very well.

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.
