Meursault "Les Tillets" 2009, Patrick Javillier

Tasted at the domaine back in May 2011, I just rediscovered this digital tasting note. At the same time I am concerned that my Meursault tasting notes are approaching the century while Puligny languishes at a mere half-century. This Meursault 2009 from the venerable Javillier domaine has a fresh citrus nose. On the palate really tight mineral, lemon, a hint of oak and line of apple. Really good acidity. Yes, this is a textbook Meursault. As always needs time to fill out and take on a rounder shape with more sophisticated aromas. Best to revisit in 2013.
