PRODUCER

DOMAINE PATRICK JAVILLIER

The Javillier family have long ties to Burgundy but as courtiers (brokers between growers and producers) rather than winemakers. In fact, following training as an electrical engineer it was as a courtier that Patrick started his working life, making wine as an aside from 1974 to 1990. It was in 1990 that he was able to focus his efforts on his vines that he has managed to build up to 10 hectares, by far the majority in Meursault.

TASTING NOTES

At the balanced, fresh and elegant yet “very Meursault”. It is made up of two plots that total just 0.6 hectares with vines averaging 35 years. The names of both plots, Les Clous and Les Crotots, are combined to create Clousots. The former is at the top of an easterly facing hilltop while the latter, heavily frost affected only made 1/5th...

Image of wine Meursault Cuvée Tête de Murger

TASTING NOTES

A powerful, tightly wound wine that benefits from extended ageing. Again, a blend of two sites, totalling just 0.62 hectares of 30 year old vines, combined to elevate beyond the sum of its parts. Les Casse-Têtes is from the heart of the village. It means ‘heads of stone’ evocative of the rocky soils the vines have to contend with, bringing...

TASTING NOTES

Few vintages have expressed all the virtues of the Tuscan coast’s climate as eloquently as 2016. An almost perfect combination of sunshine, warm summer days and cool nights, with just about enough rain to slow down the vine’s growth without making them suffer from drought have led to one of the purest expressions of Le Volte dell’Ornellaia, combining perfectly ripe...

TASTING NOTES

Yellow with green hues; clean and bright. Outstandingly intense aromas, with hints of stone fruit (peaches), white fruit (pears and ripe apples) and quince, in addition to a remarkable lemon leaf citrus background. A flavoursome mouth is accompanied by an enjoyable breadth and freshness, together with a very well-integrated acidity. Very persistent, fruit-forward finish. Perfect to enjoy with any appetiser....

His scientific grounding still informs his approach to his winemaking, always thoughtful and with theories of how to improve. In order to achieve the maximum results he vinifies each plot, not just vineyard, separately before extended ageing on fine lees in barrel and then tank. He feels this approach is vital to allow for the long ageing that his fantastic wines deserve. While Cuvee des Forgets can be drunk on arrival, the other two wines will be best left to mature for a further 3-5+ years before opening them. Patrick is a firm believer in blending plots, to equal more than the sum of their parts as with Les Clousots and Tête de Murger. He will match the personalities of each plot to achieve the best balance in the final blend.
