1996 Domaine Patrick Javillier Meursault "Cuvée Tête de Murger"

SKU #1313151 95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Beautiful. Imposing, intense and concentrated, this heavyweight white Burgundy hits one punch after another--lemon, honey, mocha, toast, butter--in a movement of sheer harmony. The finish is clean, fresh and long--and refined. (PM) Inner quote mark (5/1999)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Meursault Cuvee Tete de Murger, a one-third blend of Meursault Casse Tete and two-thirds Meursault Les Murgers, is an extraordinary 'village' offering, on par with first rate premier crus. Revealing cake batter aromas, this wine's explosive attack is followed by an awesome hold and length. This harmonious, intricate, medium-to-full-bodied, and oily wine is jam-packed with ripe pears and salty almond cookies whose flavors linger on through its long and intense finish. Javillier stated that he had always been baffled by the East-facing Casse Tete vineyard. Wines from this site had an excellent attack yet lacked hold and persistence. To rectify this, he blended Casse Tete with Les Murgers, which in his opinion produces wines with magnificent body and length, but has a 'boring front end.' The blend is remarkable! (PR) Inner quote mark (2/1998)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Racy, vibrant aromas of lime, mandarin orange, minerals, flowers and nut skin. Very intensely flavored and layered; consistent from the strong attack through the subtle, very long finish. Better than most premier crus from Meursault. (ST) Inner quote mark (9/1998)
