2018 Bourgogne Blanc, Cuvee Oligocene, Domaine Patrick Javillier, Burgundy, France
Ripe, expressive and succulent Bourgogne Blanc from one of the most acclaimed winemakers in Meursault, Patrick Javillier. Aromas of brioche, tarte au pomme and freshly buttered toast. Rich, ripe and sumptuously-textured; a Meursault look-alike at half the price. From vines situated within the appellation of Meursault itself.
Patrick Javillier began working in wine in 1974 and now, his daughter Marion produces an exceptional range of white Burgundy from Meursault and beyond, with her proud father close by. The esteem in which their estate is held is even more impressive considering their small holdings in 1er and grands crus. But this is indicative of their approach: they ensure every cuvée, from Bourgogne Blanc upwards, fulfils its potential.
