Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    Genevrières is a large premier cru plot and Antoine’s parcel is an absolute gem. This 2018 is full of the joys of an English summer with notes of honeysuckle, quince and clementine. Broad, but not overpowering, this cuvée is long and bright. High class.

    The 2018 Meursault Genevrières 1er Cru comes from a single 0.50-hectare parcel of vines. This has a very feisty bouquet, quite feral compared to its peers, showing just a touch of warmth compared to the more refined Poruzots. The palate is more "controlled" but still quite rich and maybe overly generous at the expense of tension and nervosité, especially on the finish. I would like to revisit this once in bottle.

    The king of the cellar this year is the 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières, a deep and layered wine that unwinds in the glass with notes of citrus oil, fresh Anjou pear, peach and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and multidimensional, it's bright, lively and concentrated, with a textural, enveloping profile of considerable charm. Drink 2025-2045.

Producer

Domaine François Jobard

Antoine Jobard joined his father François at the family domaine in 2002 and in the past decade has taken full control of this well-established Meursault domaine. François had a reputation for making wines to age. Often inscrutable in their youth they grew into some of the most rewarding white Burgundies with a few years in bottle. Antoine has tweaked the formula while maintaining the same outstanding quality. His wines retain the ability to age, but they are more graceful and approachable in their youth than his father’s. What’s more, they have sacrificed none of the domaine’s signature texture or complexity in this adaptation. The style balances intensity and concentration with freshness and energy.

Region

Meursault

Meursault is the first great white wine area that one stumbles upon on leaving Beaune. Unlike other white dominated appellations in Burgundy, Meursault has no grand cru vineyards. It nonetheless has significant flair and power which make up for this deficiency. Indeed, if tasted blind some of these wines could even surpass other Burgundian grand crus. They are no fainting daisies. This may partially be due to Meursault's lower water table which enables the roots to delve deep in the soil picking up many trace minerals and which further stresses the vines. In addition, the cellars are more profound and cooler, enabling long fermentations, which increase complexity and longevity. Some interesting red wines are also made.
