    Winemaker Notes

    On the nose, this wine is inspiring, with notes of white and yellow fruits followed by floral and slightly toasted aromas (due to the oak casks used). Elegant and robust. On the palate, it is at first fleshy and a little vigorous, then well-balanced and full with the right degree of acidity and the same aromas as observed on the nose. Fresh and with character, this wine has a long and fine finish.

    Wonderful before the meal as an apéritif or with fish, shellfish as well as certain cheeses such as Brie or Mont d’or.

    Domaine Patrick Javillier, France
    "Javillier is a passionate seeker after truth (or, in this case, perfection) working each barrel differently in a constant series of trials to see what works best. He has little in the way of grand land, but he is a real master."—Clive Coates

    No one else can take you for a walk through Meursault like Patrick Javillier. Tasting through his wines with him requires the utmost concentration. No flip little asides like, "C'est bon," are going to fly with this perfectionist. He has lived with every wine intimately, thought it through, and conducted every imaginable experiment with each one to extract its absolute essense.

    Meursault growers are blessed with a lower water table than Puligny, for example, so their wine cellars are deeper. Deeper means cooler, cooler means longer fermentations and more complete, integrated wine.

    A legendary wine region setting the benchmark for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay worldwide, Burgundy is a perennial favorite of many wine lovers. While the concept of ‘terroir’ reigns supreme here—soil type, elevation and angle of each slope—this is a region firmly rooted in tradition. Because of the Napoleonic Code requiring equal distribution of property and land among all heirs, vineyard ownership in Burgundy is extremely fragmented, with some growers responsible for just one or two rows of vines. This system has led to the predominance of the "negociant"—a merchant who purchases fruit from many different growers to vinify and bottle together.

    Burgundy’s cool, continental climate and Jurassic limestone soils are perfect for the production of elegant, savory and mineral-driven Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with plenty of acidity. Vintage variation is of particular importance here, as weather conditions can be variable and unpredictable. In some years spring frost and hail must be overcome.

    The Côte d’Or, a long and narrow escarpment, forms the heart of the region, split into the Côte de Nuits to the north and the Côte de Beaune to the south. The former is home to many of the world’s finest Pinot Noir wines, while Chardonnay plays a much more prominent role in the latter, though outstanding red and white are produced throughout. Other key appellations include the Côte Chalonnaise, home to great value Pinot Noir and sparkling Crémant de Bourgogne. The Mâconnais produces soft and round, value-driven Chardonnay while Chablis, the northernmost region of Burgundy, is a paradise for any lover of bright, acid-driven and often age-worthy versions of the grape.

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
