Domaine Patrick Javillier
About Domaine Patrick Javillier
Based in Mersault, the Javillier family has been farming their family plot since 1945. Patrick took over the management of the estate from his father in 1974 and, over the years, increased his acreage by buying over neighbouring vineyards and merging with those owned by his wife, Catherine’s family.
A Burgundian vigneron who, in the highly knowledgeable eyes of Jancis Robinson MW, remains criminally “under-exposed and under-garlanded”, Patrick Javillier is a low-profile winemaker nestled in the village of Meursault. Focusing on interpreting and coaxing the very best from his vineyard holdings and terroirs, he has consistently received a lot of praise from leading critics.
Patrick Javillier is a firm believer in the wizardry of blending. The masterful vigneron knits together wines from individual “climats”, each with complimenting characters, to create wines that are undoubtedly greater than the sums of its parts.
Admittedly a specialist of Meursault, his village bottlings captures vividly his uncommon blending philosophy. Meursault Les Clousots and Meursault Cuvée Tête de Murger are amongst the most sought-after and special cuvée. Alongside these, Javillier also possesses 0.17 hc of Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru.
