Meursault ‘Les Clousots’ Domaine Patrick Javillier 2016
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.
This Meursault wine springs from the marriage of two Climats: on the one hand Les Clous, situated on the top part of the classic Meursault slopes exposed to the east and with a more clay type soil; on the other hand Les Crotots also facing eastwards but with a clay-limestone soil and located below Meursault premier cru Les Porusots.
The wine has a delicate bouquet with fruit aromas, pleasant and very fragrant; in the mouth it is fleshy with a lot of freshness and some clean citrus notes. This wine has depth and is harmonious with a long and fine finish. It is a great wine for ageing.
