Remi Jobard, son of Charles Jobard and nephew of François Jobard, was inspired by these legendary brothers and eventually took over the helm of this remarkable estate. And, as is so often the case in Burgundy, a famous surname is associated with an enviable range of vineyards. When tasting these wines, it immediately becomes clear how amazing his Bourgognes are. Not surprising given that all its Burgundy plots are directly adjacent to Villages Meursault or 1er Cru Meursault. Currently, the domain includes 8 hectares of vineyards. No herbicides or perticides had been used since 1994, but Remi decided to take 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 anyone in Meursault, namely 2 months. He even moves the barrels outside where it is colder so that the fermentation lasts as long as possible. The result is refinement, elegance and enormous storage potential.

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