2010 Domaine Antoine Jobard Meursault 1er Cru "Poruzots"

SKU #1306781 94 points John Gilman

 This is a great young bottle of Poruzots. The utterly refined, complex and very deep nose jumps from the glass in a classy blend of passion fruit, apple, orange zest, a touch of pink grapefruit, almond, iodine, beautiful soil tones and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very, very pure on the attack, with great intensity of flavor, bright, piercing acids, laser-like focus and great cut and grip on the very long, perfectly balanced and seamless finish. A beautiful young bottle of Meursault. (Drink between 2017-2040)  (11/2011)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2010 Meursault Poruzots is another of the silkier, more graceful wines in this lineup. Bright citrus, pears, white flowers and crushed rocks are all woven together in a fabric of notable class and elegance. Cool, incisive notes reappear to frame the exquisite finish. This is a hugely promising Meursault. (AG)  (8/2012)

92-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 (tasted from cuve about two weeks prior to bottling): Discreet orange and honey aromas are lifted by a lavender topnote. The juicy palate shows lovely perfumed lift and structure to the lemon, lime and orange peel flavors. More open today than the recently bottled 2010s, but those wines are quite fine too and not hard. Really terrific intensity and cut here. The tactile, stony finish displays impressive rising length and strong citrus character. (ST)  (9/2012)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 This is aromatically less refined but more complex with its pungent nose of hazelnut, green fruit, pear and just a hint of wood. There is excellent volume to the extract rich, powerful and solidly well-concentrated medium weight flavors that possess excellent persistence on the impeccably balanced finish. This is still very tight and may require up to a decade to fully mature. *outstanding*  (9/2010)

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.
