Bourgogne Blanc ‘Cuvée des Forgets’ Domaine Patrick Javillier 2018
Domaine Patrick Javillier, Chassagne Montrachet
Patrick Javillier has been making wine since 1974. He got his Diplôme National d'Œnologie in Dijon in 1973. He then continued with his military service for a year. The day after he was done with his military service he was back in Meursault vinifying the 1974 all on his own. His father had retired and left the three hectares of vines to his son.
Cuvée des Forgets comes from different parcels in the Bourgogne Blanc appellation situated in the territory of Meursault les Herbeux and les Vaux next to Volnay.
The nose is expressive, elegant and powerful with notes of white and yellow fruits, succulent flowers and touches of toast. On the palate, the wine displays fine balance and a lovely body with crisp acidity. The same aromas are found as on the nose. This is an expressive and fresh wine with a long finish.
