"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 essence.

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.
