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 Francois 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.

VINIFICATION
- 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



88-91 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:

"A more typically styled nose is comprised by notes of hazelnut, brown butter, white orchard fruit and a whiff of acacia. There is once again excellent richness to the full-bodied and caressing flavors that terminate in a lush, even opulent finish that despite all of the sap remains refined. Lovely." - (Jun 15, 2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2016 Meursault Village usually comes from three vineyards, although two were virtually entirely decimated by frost, and so this comes almost entirely from Les Chaumes. It has a delightful bouquet with dried honey and subtle hazelnut aromas that gradually unfold in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a brisk, well-defined entry, not a complex Meursault Village but nimble on its toes with a touch of spice on the short finish." - Neal Martin (Dec 2017)
