An easy relaxed wines, it's just 'there' on the palate, with more volume than the Bourgognes, and more complexity and interest in the fruit. A very calm and succulent feel. Drinking range: 2017 - 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.

Quite delicate and intriguing nose. Broad fruity palate with lots of interest and juice. Hint of liquorice. Drinking range: 2017 - 2022 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - 2016)

The 2014 Meursault Sous la Velle, which comes from vines behind maison Jobard, is matured in 20% new oak. It has a fresh nose with hints of oyster shell infusing the citrus fruit. The palate has a sense of brightness on the entry, a squeeze of lime and lemon here, a taut line of acidity and a sense of strictness on the finish that should mellow with bottle age. It's very tight at the moment, so afford this a year or two once in bottle. Drinking range: 2016 - 2024 Rating: 87-89 Neal Martin, 2015)

Clear light yellow. Inviting, nuanced aromas of lime, peach, clove and almond flower. Rich, chewy, saline and harmonious; seems lower in acidity and more open-knit than the 2013 version. A real fruit bomb but the saline, chewy finish shows a positive dry edge. Rating: 89-91 Stephen Tanzer, 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.
