2015 Domaine Antoine Jobard Meursault 1er Cru "Blagny"

SKU #1352576 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Meursault -Blagny 1er Cru has a crisp bouquet with scents of dried honey, hazelnut and smoke, demonstrating more delineation and drive compared to the Puligny Champs-Gain. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with a fine line of acidity. I appreciate here the saline undertow of this wine and the energy conveyed towards the finish. The persistence feels long but tender, completing one of the domaine's best wines this vintage. This would be my pick from Jobard this year. (NM)  (4/2017)

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Moderate reduction knocks down the nose though the underlying fruit does seem ripe. The exceptionally rich, round, concentrated and caressing medium-bodied flavors possess a highly seductive mouth feel while delivering fine length if only slightly better than average depth.  (6/2017)

92 points John Gilman

 The 2015 Meursault “Blagny” from the Jobard family is excellent, with a wide open nose and a nicely structured palate that augurs very well for its future development. The bouquet is the essence of Meursault, offering up a constellation of apple, passion fruit, a fine base of soil, toasted almond and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with excellent acidity for 2015, impressive focus and balance and a long, still fairly primary and classy finish. Give this a couple of years of bottle age to allow the palate to catch up with the expressiveness of the nose. (Drink between 2019-2040)  (11/2016)

92 points Vinous

 Bright, light yellow. Very closed nose hints at lemon, vanilla and white flowers. Densely packed and concentrated, with penetrating minerality leavening the wine's ripeness. Not yet hugely long but offers terrific finesse and texture. Jobard notes that the young-vines portion of this holding brings both opulence and energy to the blend. This should be superb with some time in bottle: Jobard suggests waiting until seven years after the harvest to pull the cork. (ST)  (9/2017)

90 points Decanter

 After the Pulignys, the first Meursault in Jobard's range of premier crus is much more closed and reduced at this early juncture, with a nose of apple, pear, hazelnut and toasted wheat, leading into a nicely concentrated, minerally and penetrating palate. It is, however, missing some of the cut and tension this can have in cooler vintages.Drinking Window 2019 - 2030. (WK)  (10/2017)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Chardonnay

- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
Specific Appellation:

Meursault

- The town of Meursault is a prosperous village, with a Gothic town hall and narrow winding streets. It produces a small amount of red wine, but is justly famous for its whites. Although it has no Grand Cru vineyards, its Premiers Crus are justly famous, particularly Charmes, Poruzots, Perrières and Genevrières. A good Meursault has concentration, grip and backbone, in addition to its soft and rich fruit.
