100% Meursault? Yes!
How can that be? Wouldn't the name of the village be on the label?
Generally, yes. Sometimes, local wine laws and technicalities preclude the use of the village name on the label (case in point, the Gevrey Chambertin we recently featured).
Sommeliers often refer to this gem as a "Baby Meursault." But, the 2018 Jobard Bourgogne Blanc is anything but a baby!
If you were to blind-taste this Chardonnay, it would have all the classic Meursault attributes - pear, lemon zest, green apple, white peach, orange oil, and white flower. The 2018 vintage - a beautiful vintage - provides lift and grace. A hint of roasted nut and wonderful chalk provide a bit of weight and texture. This is absolutely delicious!
"There are whispers that Burgundy 2018 is one of the greatest ever vintages." Decanter, Tim Atkins
From this stunning vintage, it should also be noted: Jobard produces seven Meursault cuvees of which three are 1er Cru. Most of the fruit from this wine borders the 1er Cru Charmes vineyard within Meursault. It is literally a stone's throw away and can be measured in inches.
For this reason, locals tend to snatch up all that is available with very little making its way out of France. And by the way, this beautiful Chardonnay also happens to be certified organic.
Extremely limited. While supplies last.
