2019 Antoine Jobard Meursault
After working alongside 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 some years now, he can still be found almost daily in the vineyards and cellar to assist his son. With the arrival of Antoine, the style of the wines has changed slightly. Some minor changes made during winemaking have made them more accessible and refined, without losing any of their character. Antoine prefers to work with finer lies than his father. He also bottles the wine in April/May of the second year following the harvest. These are just details, but the quality of the wines has increased further as a result.
This Antoine Jobard Meursault is naturally made from 100% chardonnay grapes. After harvesting, the wine is aged in oak for a period of 12 months and then the wine is returned in parts to 228 liter barrels for 6 to 10 months. The Antoine Jobard Meursault has fine and complex aromas, a delicious combination of richness and finesse. This wine is delicious on the nose and mouth, with concentrated fruit on the nose and precise flavors of fruit on the palate. This wine will only get better in the coming years.
Jobard's statement about the wine best reflects the style 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.”
