Winemaker Notes

Les Tillets is situated above Meursault, near the mountain with a south/south-east exposure. The vines range from 30 to 70 years old and are situated on slopes. The nature of the topsoil is clayey and brown limestone over hard limestone.

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.

Critical Acclaim

BH 90
Burghound.com
A subdued and mildly reduced nose renders it hard to evaluate today. Otherwise the sleek and sophisticated medium weight flavors also possess a highly seductive mouth feel along with markedly more minerality on the saline, intense and beautifully persistent finish. This is impeccably well-balanced and while the pliant mid-palate will make this approachable young, it should easily be capable of repaying mid-term keeping. In sum, this is an excellent Meursault villages.

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.

Known to offer a magical balance of smoothness and freshness, Meursault's quality is hard to rival. The village lies in the middle of Côte de Beaune, just south of Volnay. Meursault is said to mean “mouse’s jump” because in the past the plots producing Pinot noir and those producing Chardonnay were no more than a mouse’s jump from one another. Today the village is almost exclusively Chardonnay. A tiny bit of Pinot noir is produced here with the best coming from Les Santenots on its northern side near Volnay.

While there are no Grands Crus, Meursault’s numerous acclaimed Premiers Crus can compete with any other top-notch white Burgundy. Some to know are Les Perrières, Les Genevrières, Les Charmes, Le Poruzot, Les Bouchères and Les Gouttes d’Or.

Meursault produces outstanding village level wines as well. In general great Premiers Crus and even village level Meursault (Chardonnay) have enticing aromas of lime peel, tropical fruit, crushed rocks, spice and hazelnut. On the palate there is a wonderful balance of brightness and a seductive length with flavors of white peach, pineapple and citrus.

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.
