Patrick Javillier’s wine always receive great reviews from critics. Long ageing on the lees and blend of different climats with complimenting characteristics are key to produce rich wines with a lot of character.
The “Tillets”, named after a tree found around the vineyards, is located above the hillside of Meursault. Blend from 6 parcels, the wine is aged for a year in barrel before being matured further in tank on its fine lees. Aromas of white flowers, citrus and peach and a slight spicy note. Complex, full-bodied yet very elegant with mineral notes and fine aromatic freshness.
The 2014 Meursault Les Tillets has a very perfumed nose with lime flower, citrus fruit and cold limestone scents that possess more vigour that Javillier's other 2014s. The palate is fresh and vibrant with a citric thread of acidity. Plenty of energy here, quite linear at the moment, but there is commendable precision on the malic finish that leaves the mouth fresh and wanting more.- 92 pts Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
