Remi Jobard, Meursault 1er Cru Le Poruzot-Dessus 2018Regular price $155.00 Save $-155.00
This property Valerie and I visited for the first time in 2010 and we have been drinking the wines ever since. The Jobard name is a powerful one in Meursault, and Remi took full control of this estate in 1996 from his father. When this transition took place, he found himself taking over Meursault and Puligny-based Bourgogne Blancs. The domaine has not used herbicides or pesticides since 1994; they are certified organic. Tasting these wines are a "sensual tour of rock and vine."
This Premier Cru plot is just half a hectare located in the upper 'Dessus' portion of Poruzots. These vines are more than 60 years old and have more limestone in this section of the parcel. The wine is aged in 50% barrique, 20% of which is new, and 50% in large older foudre.
