Blending grapes from two vineyards—Les Case-Têtes (broken heads, so called from the steepness of the slope) and Les Murgers de Monthelie—Patrick Javillier has created a big, bold, ripe wine that keeps a mineral, crisp center. The toast from 11 months in wood is beginning to calm down, and this will age magnificently.
A wine from vineyard on the edge of Meursault. The soil is loam over chalk, hence the name of the wine. The fruit is fresh, relatively light, with crisp green acidity. The wood element is just a hint.
While this is crisp and fresh, it also has an attractive, round vanilla flavor that provides a smooth, creamy texture. It’s refreshing with apple and pear flavors, with appealing acidity on the finish.
