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 - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"An equally cool, pure and airy nose is similar though with more citrus fruit emphasis. The racy, intense and notably more concentrated medium weight flavors flash more evident minerality as well on the more complex and much longer finale. Worth a look." (June 2020)

90-92 Points - Vinous Media:

"The 2018 Saint-Aubin Les Perrieres 1er Cru is bestowed with more intensity on the nose than the Sur Le Sentier du Clou and boasts lovely spicy, slightly petrolly aromas that spring forth with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a citrus-driven entry, a keen thread of acidity and a linear, almost Puligny-like finish that lingers in the mouth. Excellent." - Neal Martin (Jan 2020)
