Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, November 2021

    The 2020 vintage really enhances the Meursault like characteristics of this vineyard’s wine coming from the Volnay side of the appellation and enjoying a rich base of clay in the soil. Striking yellow fruit characters with hints of quince and medlar jam. The excellent creamy volume is held together perfectly by a gentle touch of youthful acidity. Approachable and instantly pleasurable.

  • BURG

    Burghound, June 2022,
    Score: 86-88

    Ripe and very fresh aromas include those of apple, pear and cool citrus. There is both good density and vivacity to the attractively textured flavors that display a mild touch of sweetness yet the lingering finish is nicely dry. Drink: 2024+

  • JAM

    Jasper Morris MW, January 2022,
    Score: 88-89

    Currently in tank, on its finings. Pale colour. A light fresh bouquet with attractive fruit. Some plums, some fresh apple, a steady build up in flesh towards the back of the palate, a good balancing acidity, and fine persistence. Really very good indeed.

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.
