RATINGS

93Burghound.com

...spicy & ripe white peach and orange blossom nose that marries into supple, intense and vibrant medium-bodied flavors that are very fresh in the mouth and evidence a bit more ripeness on the gorgeously long and equally explosive finish.

91-93Stephen Tanzer

Rich, chewy and deep, with the citrus oil and nutty flavors lifted by strong minerality, which also gives firmness and finesse to the finish.

17+ Jancis Robinson

Rich, sweet, round and rather glorious. Certainly different and risk taking. Bravo ! Far from formulaic.

PRODUCER

Domaine Francois et Antoine Jobard

Domaine Francoise et Antoine Jobard is a 15-acre estate in Meursault. It has vineyard parcels in Meursault, Meursault-Blagny and Puligny-Montrachet. Founded in the 19th century, this family-run domaine is today operated by Antoine Jobard, son of Francois. The name of the estate changed slightly over the years to reflect the passage of its management from father to son. All the parcels are either Premier Cru or villages. Clive Coates notes that Domaine Antoine Jobard “is one of the great Meursault estates.”

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Meursault, Les Genevrieres

Les Genevrieres is 41-acre Premier Cru vineyard in Meursault, in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. It is in the southern part of the appellation, and just to the north of Les Perrieres and Les Charmes. Burgundy writer Clive Coates says that “Genevrieres is an opulent, even exotic wine. It is rounder than Perrieres and if not fuller, then certainly lusher…Here flavors are muskier, and there can be an element of citrus.” Since Meursault lacks a Grand Cru, Meursault’s reputation for excellence is based on the Premier Crus, particularly the whites.

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay, 1er (Premier) Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
