Remi Jobard, son of Charles Jobard and cousin of François Jobard, was inspired by these legendary brothers and eventually took over the helm of this remarkable domain. And as so often in Burgundy, a famous family name has an enviable assortment of vineyards. When tasting these wines it immediately becomes clear how amazing his Burgundy are. Not surprising since all his Burgundy plots directly border on Villages Meursault or 1er Cru Meursault. The domain currently comprises 8 hectares of vineyards. No herbicides or perticides have been used since 1994, but Remi decided to raise the quality level to an even higher level by switching to organic viticulture. Since 2011 all vineyards are also certified organic. In addition, he applies the longest fermentation of everyone in Meursault, namely 2 months. He even moves the barrels outside where it is colder so that the fermentation takes as long as possible. The result is refinement, elegance and an enormous storage potential.

The Domaine Rémi Jobard Meursault Sous Velle is a 100% chardonnay coming from an organically certified vineyard and is the most accessible from the Meursault series by Jobard (or rather approachable or first completely drunk). The grapes have fermented for no less than 2 months (the longest fermentation in Burgundy) and then ripen in 70% used oak barrels and in 30% new oak. The Jobard Sous Velle is beautiful straw yellow with aromas of green and yellow fruit mixed with citrus. The Sous Velle Meursault is medium to full-bodied, elegant with a good concentration, good acids and a chalky finish.
