Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    Perfect bright lemon colour with soft ripe yellow fruit on the nose. This swells in volume on the palate, with a little agreeable barrel toast supporting the fruit, and good tension at the back. Should only take a couple of years before being ready to start drinking. The hillside freshness returns at the finish.

    The 2018 Meursault Les Tillets has a clean, well-defined bouquet with yellow plum, hazelnut and light waxy aromas developing in the glass. The palate is well balanced with orange rind and lemon zest on the entry. This is quite a phenolic Meursault, one that is well balanced with a complex finish befitting a vineyard like Les Tillets. Recommended. 2022 - 2030

    Here the more expressive nose offers another small step up in aromatic elegance with its cool aromas of spiced jasmine tea, essence of pear and wet stone. The intense and delineated middle weight flavors brim with both dry extract and minerality that coats the palate on the linear and beautifully long finish. This is a classic Tillets of lace and grace. 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.
