2013 Domaine Rémi Jobard
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
The 'classic' Bourgogne Blanc has great precision to the nose which is floral, crystalline and delicate while having quite a lot of weight behind it; lovely! Drinking range: 2016 - 2019 L&S (Nov 2014)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Sweetish and pretty concentrated for a Bourgogne 2013. Seems a fair price for a wine that is rather like an old-style Meursault – even a bit buttery! Drinking range: 2017 - 2021 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2015)
He picked this on the last day and it had some botrytis, but you cannot smell it. Rounded and full for a Bourgogne; really quite rich and generous, sufficiently fresh and not at all heavy. Fruit driven and very pleasing. Drinking range: 2016 - 2019 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing (Nov 2014)
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.
