Domaine Patrick Javillier

About the Producer

Region: Meursault

Since 1990 Patrick has increased his holdings to 10 hectares mainly in Meursault. Individual plots are vinified separately before extended ageing on fine lees for an extra layer of complexity. Patrick is a firm believer in blending grapes from different vineyards to create wines which are more than their individual parts, as with Les Clousots and Tête de Murger. Javillier has created an impressive selection of 2019s. The 2019s are vigorous and intense and display a vibrant mineral edge, a style which suits this domaine and will allow the wines to age well. Under Marion Javillier and her brother-in-law Pierre-Emmanuel Lamy, who now make the wines, the domaine is in safe hands.

Tasting Notes

By James Snoxell, Fine Wine Buyer

2019 Bourgogne Côte d’Or Cuvée des Forgets
£75 per 6 bottle case in bond

Fresh and bright, the 2019 has an expressive aroma of yellow plum and citrus notes. On the palate, zesty stone fruits are balanced by a pithy minerality. From grapes grown on the Volnay side of Meursault, this is an impressive Bourgogne Chardonnay. Drink from 2021.

2019 Bourgogne Côte d’Or Cuvée Oligocène
£100 per 6 bottle case in bond

A remarkably complex Bourgogne with an enveloping bouquet of honeysuckle, apricots and peach leading to a juicy and bright palate full of refreshing citrus fruits. The grapes come from a vineyard near Puligny on limestone soils which gives this wine a lively mineral edge. Drink from 2021.

2019 Meursault Les Tillets
£195 per 6 bottle case in bond

From rocky soils above Meursault, which force the roots to dig deep into the subsoil, this is a very elegant wine with a zesty bouquet of fresh apples and perfumed stone fruits. Perfectly balanced, with nice definition and a chalky mineral foundation, it offers a fresher style than most Meursaults and will age well. Drink from 2023.

2019 Meursault Les Clousots
£235 per 6 bottle case in bond

A blend of two vineyard sites, Clous and Crotots, the 2019 offers aromas of green apples, yellow pears and flower blossom. Mineral and refreshing with an elegant salty note, it builds in volume in the glass to reveal lovely depth and length. Great potential here. Drink from 2023.

2019 Puligny-Montrachet Les Levrons
£245 per 6 bottle case in bond

On the Meursault side of the village just below Referts, this is always appealing and vibrant young, punching well above its weight. 2019 is particularly impressive. A bouquet of fresh green apples leads to an intense citrus palate balanced by a textured mineral quality. It will benefit from a few years in the cellar before drinking. Drink from 2024.

2019 Meursault Cuvée Tête de Murger
£310 per 6 bottle case in bond

Another impressive blend, this time from Les CasseTêtes and Au Murger de Monthélie. Elegant and subtle on the nose, with bright lemon fruit and a firm mineral backbone, this wine has tremendous length and complexity, and great ageing potential. Due to millerandage and frost, production is down 60%. Drink from 2024.

2019 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru
£580 per 6 bottle case in bond

Attractive and energetic with lovely length, the 2019 has a bouquet of fresh apples with scents of meadow flowers and a hint of bitter orange. Intense flavours of green plum, damson and pear, with a note of freshly cut ginger, are complemented by a chalky mineral character. Drink from 2025.
