Better and better each year, this cuvée. Rémi's first harvest after buying it was 2008 - now he thinks it is nearly at the level of the Chevalières. Much bigger smokier nose, palate too is bigger with a layered fruit, star anise, a bouquet of greenery, complex and immensely attractive. L&S (Jan 2013)

The 2011 Meursault Narvaux has a more refined bouquet than the en Luraule ’11, with more delineation and terroir expression coming through. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, a fine thread of tension and a very linear finish that suggests it will benefit from another two or three years in bottle. This is worth seeking out.

Jobard's 2011 Meursault Narvaux impresses for its sheer breadth and ample presence on the palate. Today the 2011 is incredibly tight, with flavors that aren't fully developed. Still, there impeccable class, balance and integrity in the Narvaux. Gentle hints of spices, dried pear and minerals blossom on the finish. This is a gorgeous wine from Jobard, but patience is required. Rating: 92 Antonio Galloni, 2013)

Bright yellow. Aromas of white peach, lemon and lime lifted by flowers and spices. More obviously oaky on the palate, with the spice and hazelnut flavors currently overshadowing stone and citrus fruits. Finishes fresh and tight, in need of a couple years of patience.

High toned with savoury minerals. Straight and grippy on the palate. I do like the freshness and grip here. Plenty of tension and nervousity. Taut and grippy on the finish. A wine of restraint and minerality. Particularly good. From 2016Sarah 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 domaine has been certified organic from 2008. He 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.

Rémi has two vast presses, to enable him to press very slowly over six hours, and 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.

Rémi made a move from traditional barrels to foudres made of a mix of French, Austrian and Slavonian oak, constructed by Austrian cooper Stockinger, and having added a new one (or two) each year, there's barely a normal barrel left. He likes the way the wines develop in these large volumes, in which the 'oaking' effect is minimised.
