Citrus, peach and a really intriguing menthol/fennel thing going on. Vibrant, rich but poised. Concentrated, complex and long. Bien fait! L&S (Jan 2012)

Domaine Rémi Jobard
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.
Bright, pale straw-yellow. Subdued but pure aromas of orange dusty and powdered stone. Shows sweet citrus and floral notes in the middle, and comes across as slightly warm after the Narvaux. Tightens up considerably on the stony finish, which displays a metallic edge and strong calcaire qualities. Rating: 90(+?) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Sep 2012)
One of the most complete, beautiful wines in this lineup, the 2010 Meursault Les Chevalieres possesses the rich fruit that is typical of the Jobard whites in 2010, yet is also has considerable minerality. There is a level of nuance and sheer delineation in the Chevalieres that is simply striking. Bright floral notes leave a lasting impression on the impeccably balanced, long finish. This is Jobard’s oldest parcel. The vines were planted in 1940. Anticipated maturity: 2014+ Rating: 92 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Sep 2012)
Even more minerally than the Narvaux from the same producer, again showing notes of citrus rind and cashew nut. The concentration is understated, but it’s there all right, supported by the stony finish. 2016-22 (94/100) Rating: 94 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com (Feb 2012)
Rating: 17.5 Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com (Jan 2012)
Very racy and beguiling. Lively and tense. Needs a bit of time to develop real interest. 2015-2020 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2012)
Smoky, toasty aromas. The palate has some creamy richness and fruit is balanced by nicely judged oak. Quite a savoury style. Concentrated and focused. Rating: 88 Natasha Hughes MW, www.wine-pages.com (Jan 2012)
Bright yellow with a green tinge. Lemon peel and white flowers on the lively nose. Rich, chewy and sweet; finer-grained than the Narvaux, with its concentration and thickness nicely leavened by a hint of crushed stone minerality and strong, harmonious acidity. Finishes broad, powerful and palate-staining. The crop level was a modest 35 hectoliters per hectare and the wine shows it. Rating: 91-93 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Jan 2012)
This has a rich ripe lemon aroma. Engaging energy on the attack. It is juicy and threaded with light white minerality. There is a higher, lively top note and rich fruit beneath. A predominantly fruit-driven wine, but with this light powdery minerality to add some complexity. Lovely acidity and the citrus finsh is entwined with slight chalky notes. Particularly good. More refined than the Narvaux. From 2013 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing (Dec 2011)
