Domaine Patrick Javillier is a classic Burgundy producer, and one of the most respected winemakers in the region. Dating back to 1877, it was renowned for its location, in Mersault. The contents of its cellars are the stuff of legends, containing a vast library of wines dating back decades, to the 50s. It produces wines from one of the most prestigious vineyards including Le Montrachet.Patrick Javillier’s passion and enthusiasm for winemaking are matched by a considered, intellectual, meticulous attention to detail.
The 2018 Savigny Les Beaune is a beautifully ethereal expression of Pinot Noir. From the snaking Premier Cru vineyard of ‘Les Serpentieres’, the earthy aromas make this a perfect match with mushroom risotto.
