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 ye

Ratings & Reviews


91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2017 Meursault Village unwinds in the glass with aromas of pear, yellow orchard fruit and white flowers mingled with hints of oatmeal and pastry cream. Medium to full-bodied, deep and satiny, it's layered and concentrated, built around a racy spine of acidity. Long and penetrating, this has turned out superbly." - William Kelley (Feb 2020)

88-91 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"Notes of matchstick, white-fleshed fruit and soft grapefruit nuances lead to racy, intense and beautifully well-delineated middle weight flavors that exude a subtle minerality onto the focused, compact and nicely persistent finish. This well-made effort will need at least a year or two of cellaring to unwind and hopefully add a bit more depth." - (Jun 10, 2019)
