After working alongside his father for several years, Antoine has been in charge of this prestigious property since 2007. Although Francois has been enjoying his retirement for several years, 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. A few minor changes during winemaking have made them more accessible and refined, without losing character. Antoine prefers to work with finer lies than his father. Furthermore, he 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.

For this Saint Aubin Bourgogne, the organically grown chardonnay grapes are pressed in whole bunches and fermentation starts in oak with the natural yeast. Then they get an aging on oak barrique 225-350L, partly new oak and partly 2nd & 3rd fill. The Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Sur le Sentier du Clou 2020 is a handsome wine with aromas of sweet citrus fruits, white flowers, freshly baked bread and a deft touch of reduction, followed by a medium-bodied, satiny and lively palate that is well-boned and mineral with an exact reflection of these stony areas in Saint-Aubin that characterize this wine.

After working alongside his father for several years, Antoine has been officially in charge of this prestigious property since 2007. Although Francois has been able to enjoy his retirement for several years, 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 during winemaking have made them more accessible and refined, without sacrificing 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. Nothing has changed with regard to the work in the vineyards. The Jobards work long hours in the vine. Their 5 hectares are severely pruned and they only work with unproductive varieties to keep yields low. In the cellar, Jobard gives his wine time. After slow fermentation (Jobard's cellars are particularly cold), using only the natural yeast cultures, the wines are left to mature for a long time. The wines are bottled without filtering after about 18 months. Jobards wines are concentrated but not thick, the wood used is highly dosed and the wines have nice acidity and lots of minerality makes them great to rijpen.Alle wines from winery Jobard be in a vessel old and spend a long sur lie in the cellars from the winery in Meursault.
