2014 Domaine Antoine Jobard Meursault 1er Cru "Poruzots"

SKU #1290007 90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 A deft application of wood sits atop the ripe green fruit, apple and grapefruit-scented nose. There is much more volume, size, weight and muscle to the big-bodied and overtly powerful flavors that are less mineral-inflected but compensate by delivering even better length on the moderately rustic finale. This concentrated effort is a classic Poruzots. *Outstanding*  (6/2016)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2014 Meursault 1er Cru Poruzots really delivers on the nose in terms of definition, intensity and focus. Here, there is real mineralité and tension, a sense of drive that derives from the earth. The palate is very well balanced with citrus fresh fruit, orange zest and a cheeky touch of passion fruit. There is an exotic side to this Poruzots, tempered with a keen line of acidity and a long persistent finish that fans out beautifully. Great wine, Antoine! (NM)  (12/2015)

92 points John Gilman

 The Jobard family has three parcels in Poruzots, and Antoine noted that most of the hail damage was in the parcel by the road in this vineyard, with the other two parcels higher up on the slope barely touched by the hail. They lost thirty percent of their production in Poruzots as a result of the storm on June 28th. But, as two of the parcels were not touched, the wine shows no ill effects in terms of energy from the storm, offering up a complex and vibrant bouquet of apple, orange, hazelnuts, a lovely vein of minerality, a touch of iodine and a gentle framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, complex and shows off lovely mid-palate depth, with excellent mineral drive, bright acids and lovely backend energy on the long and very classy finish. Fine juice. (Drink between 2016-2030) 92+  (11/2015)

90 points Vinous

 Very pale color. Ripe aromas of yellow peach and spices, with a complicating note of eucalyptus. Concentrated but firm-edged, and distinctly less fruity today than the Blagny. This very taut Meursault will need patience; it will merit a higher score if it gains in pliancy with bottle age. (ST) 90+  (9/2016)

Additional Information:



- 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.


- 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.


- 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:


- 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.
