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


90-92 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2018 Meursault Village comes from three parcels: Sous La Velle, Les Corbins and Les Chaumes. It has an elegant bouquet of fresh white peaches, citrus lemon and light wet limestone aromas, reminiscent of a Jean-Marc Roulot. There is a light tangy orange peel note on the entry of this well-balanced, quite deep wine. The persistent ginger-tinged finish fans out gently in a satisfying manner. Excellent." - Neal Martin (Jan 2020)

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2018 Meursault Village unwinds in the glass with aromas of crisp orchard fruit, white flowers and praline, framed by a light touch of youthful reduction. Medium to full-bodied, bright and racy, it's open and delicate, with tangy acids and a light touch of chalky back-end grip." - William Kelley (Jan 2021)

89-91 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"There is an interesting hint of spiced, even exotic, tea to the aromas of hazelnut, white flower and pear. There is slightly better volume if less minerality to the bracingly intense middle weight flavors that possess excellent delineation before concluding in a very dry, youthfully austere and linear finale. This is lovely and understated in style." June 2020)
