|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)

(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 OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2015)
Domaine Rémi Jobard
Rémi has been been making small qualitative changes ever since he took over here in 1996. 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.
