2014 Chevalières Domaine Rémi Jobard
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Vines planted in 1940. A cool north-easterly exposure, these are the vines he picks last. Surprisingly expressive and broad, it has an extra pulse of juiciness and energy. A real sense of limestone, fresh and dense and pure. Very long. Drinking range: 2019 - L&S (Nov 2015)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Creamy nose. Very flattering with a good blend of rich fruit and precision. Just slightly chewy on the end but this is pretty easy to like. Drinking range: 2017 - 2023 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2016)
The 2014 Meursault les Chevalières comes from east-facing vines planted back in 1940 that tend to matured late, the oldest under the aegis of Remi Jobard. It shares that apricot blossom note with the 2014 Les Narvaux, aromatics that you might describe as "neat and tidy," with peachy notes developing in the glass after. The palate is fresh on the entry with a taut line line acidity, much more reticent than the aromatics, but there is appreciable density in the mouth and a lovely spicy aftertaste. Delicious Meursault -- no more, no less. Drinking range: 2017 - 2029 Rating: 89-91 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com (Dec 2015)
Bright lemon-yellow color. Captivating lift to the aromas of citrus fruits and minerals; not at all a peachy style. Chewy, sappy and concentrated, with dominant flavors of crystallized citrus peel. This strong, vibrant wine may well offer early pleasure but should also evolve gracefully in bottle. Finishes sappy and long. Rating: 91-93 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com (Sep 2015)
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.
