It is felt that the Clos Du Cromin vineyard produces wines with more finesse than than the usual flesher style of Meursault. This is thought to be due to the higher limestone content of the vineyard. Patrick Javillier has been producing top quality wine in Meursault for many years and this 2011 is a perfect example of the quality that is achievable.

Tasting Note:

Ripe citrus lemon, minerals and creamy, golden apple and pear fruit supported by fresh acidity and gentle oak.
