Estate Notes

Patrick Javillier's Bourgogne Blanc Cuvée Oligocene 2014 has all the character or real Meursaults, but not the price tag.

The Javillier family have been in wine for generations. Patrick started his domaine in 1974 and is now one of Meursault's finest growers, gradually expanding his business to 9 hectares and estate bottling since 1990. Patrick believes that long ageing on the lees is critical to future bottle development, which takes place in cellars covered in chalk.

The Bourgogne Blanc Cuvée Oligocene is vinified as a cru (a defined vineyard area).

Reviews

"...green apples on the entry, quite Zen-like with a faint marine influence that lends it a Muscadet-like personality.” eRobertParker.com
