Meursault Les Clousots, Domaine Patrick Javillier 2017
£69.95 per bottle
Meursault Les Clousots comes from the marriage of two Climats: Meursault Les Clous at the top of the slopes and Meursault Les Crotots located just below the premiers crus, Porusots."Soft reduction pushes the fruit to the background today but my sense is that it won't last. The much bigger and more powerful flavors possess a taut muscularity along with a lovely texture thanks to the abundance of dry extract that buffers the compact, serious, balanced and strikingly long finish that is shaped by a firm core of ripe acidity. This is excellent but note well that it's completely different from the Tillets in that it's going to require at least some bottle age first. Outstanding. Top value."
