2013 Luraule Domaine Rémi Jobard
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
The most open of all the Meursaults at this stage, as Rémi confirms; there is pineapple here as well as ripe citrus, a richness and a rather fab exotic character. Very easy to like. Drinking range: 2017 - 2020 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.
(these 20-year-old vines are adjacent to Gouttes d'Or): Higher-toned and more exotic on the nose than the Sous La Velle, but offering good lift to its white peach aroma. Then dense, bright and precise on the palate, with pure citrus and stone flavors showing good verve but finishing a bit edgy. Drinking range: 2018 - 2024 Rating: 90+?

(from .45 ha parcel of 15+ year old vines that abuts Goutte d’Or). Here the nose plays right on the edge of the exotic with hints of dried yellow fruit, white flowers and lychee nut. This too is relatively lush with generously proportioned yet slightly finer medium-bodied flavors that also coat the palate on the balanced and delicious finish. This should drink well young if desired. 2018+ Rating: 87-89 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jun 2015)
Light floral nose. Good edgy lemon character. Masses of get your teeth into. Structure but sufficient juice and fruit too. Impressive persistence. Drinking range: 2017 - 2024 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2015)

The 2013 Meursault en Luraule that comes from vines opposite La Goutte d’Or, has a composed bouquet that is more pure and perfumed than the Sous la Velle. The palate is crisp and harmonious with touches of candied orange peel coming through toward the citric finish. There is a fine energy to this Meursault, and it should drink well after bottling.

This is more compact in the mid palate than the sous La Velle. It is rounded and generous as well and yellow peachy fruit, but has more energy and grip. Rating: 16.25 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.
