      Tasting Notes
      Domaine Patrick Javillier Mersault Les Tillets 2016, 75cl

      Domaine Patrick Javillier is located in the village of Meursault. Meursault, in the heart of Burgundy, is one of the most important viticultural villages of the Côte d'Or. The culture of the vine first appeared in Burgundy in the 1st century AD. It wasn't until the 13th century however that viticulture appeared in Meursault, thanks in large part to the monks of the Cîteaux. Located in the southern half of the Côte de Beaune, the vineyard of Meursault covers 600 hectares of vine. Producing in particular white wines of great renown from the grape variety Chardonnay; wines from the village are classified under the appellations of Burgundy, Meursault and Meursault 1er cru.

      Tillet was a kind of medieval lime tree that was found surrounding vineyards. Les Tillets is above Meursault near the mountain. This wine comes from six parcels of the same vineyard. The age of the vines is from 30 to 70 ans

      The nose is expressive, marked by aromas of white flowers, yellow and white fruit as well as lightly spicy notes. The nose is complex with great elegance. The palate is round with lovely vivacity and excellent aromatic freshness as well as minerality. This is a wine with a great deal of finesse and persistence on the palate that doesn’t conceal its power. Elegant and linear, its style is between a classic Meursault and a Puligny-Montrachet.

      This wine pairs well with fish, grilled or with a light sauce, as well as white meats.

      "Citrus and breadth and richness. Utterly seductive. Such brilliant precision. Great match of tension and fruit. Drink 2019 - 2028.
      (Jancis Robinson, JR Purple Pages, Jan 2018)

      "Patrick Javillier is one of Meursault's most consistent winemakers, also one who usually offers some of its best budget wines. "C'est un classique de mon époque," he enthused as we began tasting from barrels. However, as ever Patrick offers some outstanding value at the "bottom" of his range: a riposte to those that claim Burgundy has become unaffordable. Yes, a lot has, but you just have to look a little harder these days."
      (Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate # 216, December 2014)
