Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    The 2018 Tête de Murger has an appealingly plump mouthfeel, with flavours of brioche and warm caramel. Superbly concentrated, it is broad in the palate and the gentle touch of oak on the finish provides dimension and weight. High class.

    The 2018 Meursault Cuvée Tête de Murgers sports one of Javillier’s stricter bouquets, quite Puligny in style with crushed stone and glimpses of mirabelle. The palate is well balanced with a saline entry, hints of liquorice lending a bit of exoticism, especially towards the concentrated finish. Very fine, although I find the Les Tillets has more nobility. 2021 - 2030

    This is aromatically similar to the Clousots but with more floral elements. There is even better volume and mid-palate density to the muscular medium weight flavors that coat the mouth with dry extract on the overtly powerful finish where a hint of bitter lemon arises. This is a very serious Meursault villages that should amply repay up to a decade of cellaring. This too is recommended. Drink 2026+ Outstanding Top value

    Lovely pale primrose. This has much the most complex nose of all the Javillier Meursaults, with both ripe yellow fruit and some more nervous notes, as the French say. It is attractively concentrated on the palate, again showing some yellow plums, but with a greener edge behind that enhances the tension. This cuvee should be given a few years in bottle.

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.
