Ripe nectarine and pear, toasted nuts underscored by minerality
Creamy lemon, ripe pear, delicate peach and hazelnut
Antoine Jobard took over the five hectare estate from his father 12 years ago and still today produces a mere 2,000 cases a year. Antoine has developed a more mineral driven citrusy style, illustrated in this superb Meursault. It comes from Sous la Velle, Les Chaumes de Narvaux and Corbins vineyards, the grapes of which bring a lovely balance of ripe fruit along with that mineral cut. The Jobard style is light on oak, with lees ageing, but no stirring, again to retain the citrus tension. This Meursault is a lean, mineral style of great complexity and elegance that will age magnificently. For drinking now, open early, decant, then serve in large bowled glasses. Classic partners include bourride (fish stew) with aioli and sole meunière.
"Smoky pear, toasted nuts and dried white flowers, fleshy palate, with lovely texture and cut"
