2016 Domaine Rémi Jobard
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
This is bright again, but neater, more together, more serious. Lovely drive. Quite a weight of fruit. Ripe apples, grapefruit and some peachy flesh. Good acidity without being overpowering. There is some ripe matter here, filling out the middle. Really rather impressive balance. Opening up now and showing very well. This is the one that was, up to this vintage, labelled 'Vignes Nouvelles', and is now certified organic, like all Rémi's other wines. L&S (Oct 2017)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
A vaguely tropical nose reflects notes of melon and citrus peel. The round, fruity and delicious flavors are nicely vibrant if a bit one-dimensional on the otherwise attractively clean and dry finish.Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jun 2018)
Old vineyard Remi bought 3 years ago. This was under conversion to organic, but now this is converted and has joined the Bourgogne Blanc.Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Nov 2017)
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.
From the classic minerality of Chablis to the rich and comfortable Remi Jobard wine from Meursault, all of the textured joy of white Burgundy is here in this case. Whether aperitif, with dinner, or for washing down a mid-week supper, all occasions can be catered for.
