Patrick Javillier, aka "The King of Meursault", trained as an electrical engineer before studying oenology at the University of Dijon, alma mater of so many great Burgundian winemakers, and taking over the family domaine in the mid 70’s. The Javilliers have been involved in the Burgundy business for generations beginning as courtiers and, after acquiring a few hectares of vines, domaine owners. Today, the orginal 3 hectares of vines have grown to 9.5 hectares and the Domaine Javillier has become one of the elite addresses in the Côte d’Or. According to a recent Clive Coates article, Javillier is one of the top ten Burgundy domaines of all time along with the likes of fellow Meursault producer Comtes Lafon and more well known legends like Armand Rousseau and Roumier. Impressive company. Especially for a producer with no great vineyards save for a bit of Corton-Charlemagne. This domaine should be on your radar as a great source of top level Burgundy, especially for this cuvée; a perennial best value in white Burgundy.
