Domaine Patrick Javillier
- France Burgundy
Patrick Javillier is one of the original Bancroft star growers and a wonderful fellow to boot, as open and generous as his wines. His talented daughter Marion has taken over the reins and as with many other Burgundy domaines, it seems the transition to the new generation has brought an injection of verve and dynamism to the wines. The wines have a natural generosity and openness about them but are shining examples of seriously structured Burgundy from the very top drawer. Here you will find several top-class Meursaults showing great typicity yet site-informed variety, two superb and sought-after cuvées of Bourgogne that offer a 'mini-Meursault' experience, and a small allocation of his top wine Corton Charlemagne. The Bourgogne Cuvées of Oligocène and des Forgets are some of the most serious Bourgognes you can find and represent great value for money. They can be easily drunk early but will also age fantastically for 5 - 10 years.
