Jasper Morris MW, January 2022,
This Bourgogne includes declassified young vines (2015) from St-Aubin 1er Cru Derriere Chez Edouard. Pale lemon yellow. Rather a classic bouquet, with plenty of white fruit energy behind. Interesting dichotomy on the palate where there is a classic Jobardian austere tension and then some plumper fleshier white fruit behind. Very good length for a Bourgogne. 5 star wine
Domaine Antoine Jobard
This blanket regional appellation can apply to wines throughout Burgundy (60% of the area's production) as long as they comply with regulations relating to grape type, yield and alcohol content. Reds and roses are from Pinot Noir or Gamay. Whites are Chardonnay. They are usually the most straightforward of the Burgundy wines, and as a result are the least expensive and the most approachable upon release. In the hands of a more serious producer these can represent exceptional value and quality. The wines are made with the same care and attention to detail as their grander wines. However, they may not qualify for a village or communal appellation because the vines are too young or the vineyard area is outside the appellation boundary.
