Even deeper colour than the Luraule, more toward gold. Very ripe, full and opulent, but stays very fresh. Lovely length on very pure fruit notes which edge toward mango but are a bit too 'cool' quite to be that exotic.

Tense and racy. Really nervy and still with lots in reserve. Still chewy.

This is from large wood a foudres of 1500l and a piece. Golden aroma. Ripe lemon fruit with rich intensity. Very concentrated on the attack, richer and full with notes of crystallized lemon and ginger. This is underscored with firm acidity, darker minerality, neatly compact in the middle palate. There is concentrated richness to the fruit, but it is fresh. The finish has smooth graphite minerality woven with ripe fruit. Very good+ to particularly good. From 2014
Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing
(almost half of this cuvee is aging in foudre): Bright yellow. Very ripe peach and a whiff of banana on the nose. Fat and glyceral for 2010, but with an impression of strong dry extract and an edge of malic acidity giving this very rich wine good shape on the back. Ripe yellow fruit notes dominate.

A Meursault which doffs its cap to Puligny, this is rich and concentrated, with flavours of hazelnuts and stone fruits, polished oak and tangy, palate-tingling acidity.
Great white Burgundy at an affordable price. 2014-20 (93/100)
93 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com
The 2010 Meursault Narvaux (from Narvaux Dessous) is another forward, generous wine. Here the fruit takes on shades of considerable richness, at times heading toward the tropical end of the spectrum. The overall sense of harmony is terrific, even if this is a fairly bold and one-dimensional wine. Anticipated maturity: 2012+
90 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com
Captivating nose combines orange juice, white peach, quinine and crushed rock, all lifted by pepperminty high tones. Sweet but not overly so, with harmonious acidity giving energy and shape to the rich stone fruit and citrus flavors. Generous, tactile and long on the back end. Suppler and fatter than the en Luraules but still brisk and racy.

Domaine Rémi Jobard: Full Wine List and Profile
Rémi has been been making small qualitative changes ever since he took over here. The entire vineyard is cordon-pruned, so yields are naturally limited. There has been no use of fertiliser since 1994, and the vineyard is grassed-over to encourage the vine roots to go deep. The entire domaine is certified organic from 2008. Rémi says that the two most important things are the absence of weedkiller (and thus the necessity to plough, which cuts any surface roots and makes the vine go deeper) and not adding any fertiliser which again makes the roots go deeper to find nutrients. Remi has two vast new presses, to enable him to press very slowly over six hours, and is sure that this has resulted in a big jump in finesse. The élevage now lasts nearly fifteen months, so as to allow the wines to develop slowly and to avoid fining. As a result these are wines which take a moment to show, but which reward the patient with complexity and great depth of flavour. One of the absolutely top domaines of the Côte de Beaune, and still at prices that are well, well below his qualitative equivalents.
