About the Winery:

All the Jobard wines are aged in barrel and spend a lengthy period of time sur lie in their cellars in Meursault. They are the last of our white Burgundies to come to the market every year due to their unhurried approach to vinification and typically slow malolactic fermentations. In their youth, these wines are often tightly wound with an intense mineral structure that only begins to soften with extended bottle aging. Though François and Antoine work side by side, Antoine has brought his own signature to the domaine: a more sensuous approachability to the wines, most recently evident in the 2006 and 2007 vintages, which are delicious and ready to drink immediately. That said, the Jobard legacy lives on, and the wines will still explode with intense aromas of honeycomb and stone later in life. If you just can’t wait, there’s no reason not to uncork.


• Vines are trained in Guyot and Royat (50-50)
• Hand-harvested
• Grapes are pressed gently by pneumatic press, with little to no débourbage (settling of the must)
• Both primary and malolactic fermentations are in oak barrels, only 20% of which are new
• No stirring of the lees
• Aged from 20-23 months in barrel (4-5 years old)
• Finished wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered

Ratings & Reviews

90-92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"Antoine told me that the lower part of the vineyard, below where the cabotte is located, was hit by frost, so there is 20% less of the 2016 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrieres. Maybe I was just anticipating a little more complexity and mineralité on the nose of this wine, just losing a little nervosité because of the challenges of the growing season. The palate is quite powerful and intense with hints of peppermint infusing the citrus fruit on the entry that is slightly mellifluous in texture with a spicy, quite long finish. Not bad at all, although I might just have a preference for the 2015." - Neal Martin (Dec 2017)

91-93 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"More elegant and airier aromas include notes of naturally exotic tea, citrus, acacia and an interesting hint of gardenia. There is more obvious minerality to the much finer if less powerful flavors that deliver equally good depth and length. Again, while these two wines are qualitative similar, they are very different." - (Jun 15, 2018)

91+ Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"Pale color. Rather pungent nose combines white peach, lemon, lime, white pepper and herbs. Strong on the attack, then fine-grained in the mid-palate, conveying an impression of weightlessness. A very fresh, mineral-driven Genevrières with the balance for mid-term aging. Finishes tactile and vibrant, with lingering notes of lemon, lime and crushed stone." (Sep 2018)
