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 - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
From an old-vine parcel that neighbors Domaine Marc Colin's, the 2017 Puligny-Montrachet Le Trezin displays notes of ripe lemons, white flowers and almond paste. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, tensile and incisive, with good concentration, tangy acids and a sense of purity and elegance that sets it apart in Jobard's range." - William Kelley (4th Jan 2019)

89-92 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"Here too matchstick and sulfur characters mask the underlying fruit. The old vines are clearly in evidence on the rich and concentrated medium weight flavors that brim with both dry extract and minerality while delivering excellent length on the refreshing bitter citrus peel trimmed finish. This is perhaps not quite as elegant as it usually is but it is still a very fine Puligny villages. Recommended." - (Jun 10, 2019)
