En Primeur | Domaine Antoine Jobard

Antoine’s first vintage was back in 1998, when he joined his father before taking over full control of the domaine. During this period the style has evolved; the wines are less reserved than in his father Francois’s time, but they still maintain the domaine hallmark of the ability for great longevity. His winemaking is traditional. He is keen for his wines to go through a full 12-month ageing process in cask. Then, in the final few months before bottling and after the racking process, he allows each cuvée to finish its development partly in cuve (tank) to preserve vitality and freshness whilst the other part remains in cask, allowing the wine to maintain its depth and volume. His attentive nature and commitment to the very best is receiving just rewards. It is unsurprising that his wines are now becoming some of the most sought after from Meursault all around the world.

Antoine’s 2020s have an easy confidence to them, reflecting all the best attributes of a disease-free year and superb vineyard management, which is a given for this family with their stress-free vines that were able to avoid any dangers from the warm dry summer. These wines have precision, balance, depth, and long living potential.

Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, November 2021

    Genevrières is traditionally appreciated for its broad classical richness, so typical of our perception of Meursault. This exquisite wine reaches there in the end, but it is like an orchestra reaching a crescendo as it builds in class. Starting with Chevalier Montrachet like grace and elegance, Antoine says it’s like a staircase building with each step. The white floral notes, with a touch of tarragon, give way to flavours of fresh baguette, walnut and double cream. The finish has a depth that is equal to a Grand Cru. Outstanding.

    Score: 93-95

    The 2020 Meursault Genevrières 1er Cru is crisp and precise on the nose, just as mineral-driven as the Charmes though there is a little more flintiness here. The palate has exquisite balance and poise, citrus peel and lime, very good weight towards the finish with hazelnut and fumé notes on the long and (again) spicy finish. Excellent. Drink 2025 - 2045

    Jasper Morris MW, January 2022,
    Score: 94-97

    Pure lemon and lime. Masterful discretion here, restrained at first on the nose but shows an inkling of what is to follow. All about delicacy and detail, not too tangy, then the fruit swells on the palate, very nuanced, hard to imagine making this any better. Minerals and fresh lime notes appear at the back in the exceptionally persistent finish. 5 star wine
