A highly complex and very fresh if restrained nose blends notes of Granny Smith apples plus floral and spice influences that are in keeping with the vibrant, refined and admirably pure broad-shouldered flavors that brim with both minerality and dry extract. There is excellent power and plenty of punch to the well-balanced and focused finish and I very much like the sense of presence this displays. Note that patience will be required but that this should amply reward medium-term cellaring. Tasted: Jun 11, 2013. Drink: 2019+

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The nose on Javillier’s 2011 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is a little reticent at first, but dunk your nose deep into the glass and there are attractive lime leaf and orange rind aromas that emerge. There is a bit of SO2 dampening the aromatics so I grace this with an hour’s decanting. The palate is clean and fresh with touches of mango and lemon curd, then nectarine and persimmon coming through on the well-defined but tightly coiled finish. This has good substance but it needs 5 or 6 years in the cellar. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014
