In contrast to its sister “Oligocène”, Les Forgets comes from vines grown on clay soils – and this difference in terroir is very clear. There is more immediate richness to the fruit, but it still retains the laser-like precision and butterscotch notes that make Javillier’s wines so enticing. A tasting of the 2019 vintage whilst at the property in November showed what another year in bottle can do – it is simply delicious. The 2020 is undoubtedly one to enjoy when it arrives, but there will certainly be no rush.

We generally use specialised fine wine delivery couriers rather than standard couriers, giving a much higher level of care and accuracy in delivering fine wines safely to you. Wines can be delivered duty-paid to UK addresses upon payment of the required duty, VAT, delivery and storage charges (if applicable). Duty and VAT are as set by HMRC at the time of delivery. Delivery charges are based on number of cases to be delivered and are standard for all UK addresses except highlands and islands. Please ask for a quotation for highlands and islands, transfers to another bonded warehouse and for international transfers.
Please read our Delivery page for more details.
