Domaine Rémi Jobard Bourgogne Côte d'Or Vieilles Vignes 2019

2019, Bourgogne Côte d’Or Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Rémi Jobard 87-90, Inside Burgundy, Jasper Morris MW **** Four/Five Star Rating- All domaine, made from nine plots of, which three are in Les Pellands. All but one plot is over 40 years old. Clear, pure colour and a noticeably more refined nose, in a different league from the straight Bourgogne. Crystalline. The wine fattens out just a little at the back, but this is very classy and exceptionally long for Bourgogne Blanc, with the faintest sucrosity. Tasted: October 2020"

"All of Rémi’s wines show a breathtaking clarity of terroir, which come from the impeccable farming and a simple hands-off approach in the cellar; all of the wines are aged in a mixture of barrique and large older foudre. When asked about his approach Rémi says, “We are very privileged to have great terroir in Meursault. Everything I do in the vineyard and in my cellar is to make sure that terroir is transparent and completely unobscured.” Tasting through the lineup is a true masterclass of Meursault – a sensual tour of rock and vine." -Skurnik

"Rémi Jobard is the dynamic son of Charles Jobard and nephew to Francois Jobard. Growing up and learning form these legendary brothers inspired Rémi to follow in his father’s footsteps and eventually take the helm at this remarkable domaine. As is normally the case in Burgundy, with a famous last name comes an enviable assortment of vineyards. When Rémi took full control in 1996, he found himself presiding over Meursault and Puligny based Bourgogne Blancs, 4 high altitude Meursault lieu dits, and 3 of the best situated parcels of 1er crus.

Since 1994, the domaine has not used any herbicides or pesticides. After Rémi took over, he decided to take the quality of farming to the next level, converting to organics and eventually getting certification in 2011. All of Rémi’s wines show a breathtaking clarity of terroir, which come from the impeccable farming and a simple hands-off approach in the cellar; all of the wines are aged in a mixture of barrique and large older foudre.
