    A beautiful contrast to the “Forgets” cuvée. This wine is more subtle with its zestful zing of lemon sherbet and freshly squeezed limes. Its honeyed purity gives it a silkiness, a sense of grace and hints of Puligny purity reflecting its position adjoining the famous village itself.

  • Burghound, June 2022, Score: 88

    A discreet application of wood is present on the similar nose but with a bit more citrus influence. There is excellent energy and detail to the slightly more concentrated middle weight flavors that exude a refreshing salinity on the complex, lingering and balanced finale. This consistently boxes above its weight, and it is particularly good in 2020. Outstanding. Top value. Drink: 2024+

  • Matthew Jukes, January 2022, Score: 17

    Quite riper and creamy with a faint mandarin note (which I am starting to think is a hallmark of the vintage) that is haunting and rather delicious. The palate is seamless, and the oak is very much under control, making it a very successful and flattering style of wine. While it is designed as an early drinker, there is no doubt that it will hold for a good few years, too.

  • Jasper Morris MW, January 2022, Score: 89

    Bottled late November. Pretty lemon with a lime tint, this is a little stricter at first on the nose, after bottling, but with a wonderful wealth of apple and fresh pear fruit behind, and very good length. Extremely successful. Fine long aftertaste.

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.Read less

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.
