2009 Javillier Patrick, Bourgogne Blanc Cuvée ForgetMay. 2011
Forward aromas with hints of wood. Round, enough acidity though and quite some mid-palate concentration. Quite a distinguished length.
2009 Javillier Patrick, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les MonchevenoisMay. 2011
The nose is higher toned and more interesting, with blossom and herbs. Silky texture with a mid-palate expansion of flavour. Good acidity and overall freshness – very nice.
2009 Javillier Patrick, Meursault Clos du CrominMay. 2011
The nose offers hints of oak toast over a sweeter core. Lovely balance and very nice acidity. This is very tasty – not incredibly intense (it seems) but lovely all the same.
2009 Javillier Patrick, Meursault Les TilletsMay. 2011
The aromas are higher toned; white fruit with a subtle sweetness below. Broad and mouth-watering with fine intensity – lovely, lovely stuff.
2009 Javillier Patrick, Meursault Cuvée Tête de MurgerMay. 2011
The nose offers more impact and density; a little gingerbread. Round in the mouth, with very good density. The intensity is still on the upward curve after you swallow – impressive and classic Meursault.
2009 Javillier Patrick, Aloxe-CortonMay. 2011
This has a nice violet-flower aroma with a few hints of reduction below. There is width, some intensity and certainly more than one dimension of flavour – it lingers very well too. A fine villages.
2009 Javillier Patrick, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les SerpentièresMay. 2011
Tighter aromas – this has spent less time in bottle – that slowly grow. There is more obvious structure than from the Aloxe but there is lovely fruit that pads it out. This has excellent potential – probably after 15 years will be honey…
1997 Javillier Patrick, Meursault Cuvée Tête de MurgerAug. 2007
(Magnum) Medium yellow. The nose is very understated – tight even – but quite round. The palate seems to mirror the nose with a very narrow entry though quickly it opens out into the mid-palate. The acidity is not bad, contributing to to a good savoury length. Today the tightness gives this the impression that it lacks character, but there are no obvious faults. Leave for a couple of years and re-try.
