2022 Bourgogne Blanc Côte d'Or Cuvée Oligocène, Patrick Javillier

2022 Bourgogne Blanc Côte d'Or Cuvée Oligocène, Patrick Javillier

This brilliant-value Bourgogne Blanc comes from limestone parcels scattered around the Puligny side of Meursault. This wine always delivers: in 2022 it’s brimming with fresh pear on the nose. On the palate, it’s so textured and long, and particularly persistent for a Bourgogne. It sees 25% new oak, which is relatively high for a Bourgogne, adding savoury definition - you get a lot of bang for your buck here. It is a great introduction to the Côte d’Or.

Tasting notes

A similar colour, pale primrose perhaps. A little bit crisper and more classic in bouquet. Delicious white fruit, very balanced, feel the limestone, enough flesh yet with precision as well. A longer and more mineral finish than Forgets. Drink from 2025-2029. Tasted: October 2023.
