Back before Meursault was "in", Francois Jobard was wowing drinkers with beautifully precise, personable wines that were always a steal, and aged gracefully. By the time the wine world caught up with what Burgundians knew, Francois' son, Antoine had took over and was leading the estate to even greater heights. Today Antoine oversees an impressive array of lieu-dits and Premier Crus from Meursault and its surrounding appellations, producing stellar bottles of class, crystalline minerality and great longevity.

Antoine Jobard

With the boon of Meursault's popularity in the early aughts came the rise in notoriety of a select few, namely Coche-Dury, Roulot and Lafon. Yet right alongside them in terms of quality and age-ability were the wines of Francois Jobard, who produced from several of the very same vineyard sites. Around that same time, Antoine Jobard took over from his father (in 2007) and gradually pushed the level of perfectionism even higher.

Following his father's methods of longer elevage, in-barrel fermentations and long lees contact, Antoine's next step as to elevate the farming; biodynamic methods were instituted, and the noticeable changes are in the wines approachability in their youth, but also the exuberance and charm of the fruit in genral. They possess that classic Meursault flinty nature, with a nice splash of reduction in their youth, but are just as, if not more well-structured to age for decades as Francois' wines were.

The Jobard lineup from their 7 hectares is strong; the Bourgogne Blanc is among the top in Burgundy, Meursault En La Barre is a top lieu-dit of the house, bright and citrusy with great minerality. Don't miss the Poruzots and Genevrieres, which are stunning and deserving of decades in the cellar!

(this was Jobard's only parcel that was not touched by frost in 2016, producing 53 hectoliters per hectare): Highly aromatic scents of yellow fruits and minerals lifted by white flowers. Round on the attack, then discreetly spicy in the middle palate; more about finesse and precision than obvious fruit. There's something very natural about this nicely balanced wine, which finishes minerally, firm and long. This is 12.9% alcohol without chaptalization, according to Jobard.
