2011 Chevalières Domaine Rémi Jobard
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Nose not dissimilar to the Narvaux, palate again is still tight, with a bit more mineral glide so it flows even better. Really quite densely-packed, and incredible length. L&S (Jan 2013)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The 2011 Meursault Les Chevalières is impeccably layered from start to finish. Sweet honeyed notes wrap around a core of yellow-toned fruit as the wine opens up in the glass. The 2011 is all about silk and pure texture. The wine's medium-bodied, gracious personality is gorgeous to behold. Rating: 92 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Nov 2013)
Bright, pale yellow. Fresh, fruit-driven aromas of pineapple, mango and fresh herbs. Smooth and tactile but not yet showy, with spicy oak and sound acidity giving the wine shape but keeping the fruit flavors under wraps. Best today on the elegant, sweet, persistent finish, which leaves behind a piquant suggestion of red grapefruit. Plenty of intensity and lift here but this one is not yet ready for prime time.

Tense and ripe and rich and very pleasing. Lovely sleek texture with some fruit and real freshness. 2015-2020 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2013)
Touch of light, just ripened apricot fruit. Just light roundness on the front of the palate; juicy in the middle. A little succulent, but very fresh. This has an aromatic profile with the fruit on the finish. Scented, ripe and fresh. Very good+ to particularly good. From 2016 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing (Nov 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.
