2015 Domaine Antoine Jobard Meursault "En la Barre"

SKU #1352575 89-91 points John Gilman

 This was the one wine that was reduced in the cellar and really proved obstinate and did not blow off with some coaxing. Underneath the reduction is a wine that is full, focused and quite racy for the vintage, with fine backend minerality and very good grip. I am sure that this will be a very good example, but it was impossible to take a precise note at the time.  (11/2016)

91 points Vinous

 Pale, bright yellow. Reduced nose needs air. Silky, concentrated Meursault combines sucrosité and power, not to mention the typical roundness of this bottling. Tactile, pliant yet youthfully tight citrus and stone fruit flavors finish with excellent persistence. Jobard told me that the 2009 version of this wine is drinking well right now. (ST)  (9/2017)

87-90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 This is both firmly reduced and displaying residual malolactic hints. Otherwise there is once again fine richness to the round and plump flavors that possess a borderline chewy mouth feel on the lingering finish.  (6/2017)

90 points Decanter

 From deep soils, the En la Barre offers up a generous bouquet of ripe orchard fruit, mirabelle plum and orange zest. This leads into a glossy, textural, full-bodied palate with, like its cousins, good freshness and subtle grip on the finish. (WK)  (10/2017)

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.
