Notes on the property
Antoine Jobard's domain, although modest in size - just 6 hectares - is well-known to Burgundy lovers as one of the premier sources of classic Meursault. The wines here are tight and mineral, expressing their power in length rather than breadth - unmistakably white Burgundy, not crypto- New World Chardonnay. Yet they open to reveal all the richness and complexity that has made the reputation of Meursault around the world. The elevage (ageing) is long, but new oak is used sparingly (just 15% on average) and batonnage hardly at all. The resulting wines can age beautifully, should you have the strength of will to resist opening them young !
