2016 Antoine Jobard Meursault Blagny 1er Cru
After working with his father for several years, Antoine has officially been in charge of this prestigious property since 2007. Although Francois has been enjoying his retirement for several years, he can still be found in the vineyards and cellar almost daily to assist his son. With the arrival of Antoine, the style of the wines has changed slightly. Due to a few minor changes during winemaking, they have become more accessible and refined, without losing their character. Antoine prefers to work with finer lie's than his father. He also bottles the wine in April / May of the second year following the harvest. These are only details, but the quality of the wines has increased further.
This Meursault "Blagny" is made from 100% chardonnay grapes that are manually sorted in a strict way to ensure quality, the grape grew on a soil that contains a lot of lime and chalk, which has a positive influence on the taste of the wine. The Meursault is impeccably accurate, weightless and very merciful. This wine contains many aromas and many flavors including the most dominant aromas of sweet, floral notes, mint and white peaches. The smell of the Meursault is very complex as well as the taste in which one can find some of these aromas. All in all it is a wine of beautiful texture and finesse. Pracht Meursault with a great drinking window (2032+). Parker writes: "The persistence feels long but tender, completing one of the best wines from this vintage. This would be my pick from Jobard this year"
Jobard's statement about wine best describes the style that is being pursued:
“If you like Meursaults that are big, broad and oaky, and are as yellow as French headlights, then this may not be the domaine for you. However, if you like Meursaults that are taut, mineral, complex and refined, then Jobard is your man. "
