2020 Domaine Rémi Jobard Meursault 1er Cru Poruzot-Dessus
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 domain. And, as is so often the case in Burgundy, a famous surname has an enviable range of vineyards attached to it. 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 Meursault 1st Cru Poruzot-Dessus is a 100% Chardonnay coming from an organically certified vineyard. 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. In the nose, the Poruzot-Dessus has pungent lime aromas and notes of peeled almonds, green apples, white flowers. A rich, full and concentrated Meursault that is refined and has a pleasant freshness that will improve with the years. This organic meursault is so beautiful that you should certainly not drink it too cold (between 10-12 degrees).
