RATINGS

92Wine Spectator

A bit muted on the nose, this shows fine structure and flavors that are morphing from fruit to smoke, spice and mineral, with a long finish. There's still a good dose of lime, and this has the intensity to develop further.

...very fresh white flower and green fruit nose though here the flavors are more reserved and tighter with a textured and precise mouth feel, all wrapped in a citrus-infused, racy and punchy finish...

88-91Stephen Tanzer

Intriguing nose melds peach, white flowers, wild herbs and spicy oak. Rich, thick flavors of stone fruits, minerals and spices, with some sexy soft citrus tones emerging as the wine opens in the glass. Firm acidity...

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, Blagny

Meursault is one of the trio of famous Chardonnay producing appellations in the Côte d’Or. Although both red and white wines are allowed to be produced in the Meursault appellation, 98% of Meursault is Chardonnay. With a total of 2,500 acres of vineyards, there are no Grands Crus but 325 acres of Premiers Crus, which are divided into 13 main vineyards. As wine writers have often noted, Meursault’s fame is based on its Premiers Crus, including the prestigious Les Perrières, Les Genevrières and Les Charmes. Because the water table is low in Meursault, many producers have cellars here, including Comte Lafon and Jean-Francois Coche-Dury. Robert M. Parker Jr. wrote “the Premiers Crus, as well as the finest Villages Meursaults from the top vineyards, are among the easiest drinking white burgundies in the world. Why? High-quality Meursault is opulent, almost unctuous, with a fatness and a juicy, succulent, buttery, hazelnut and apple, peach-like fruitiness that often roars from the glass.”

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.
