Here is an excellent follow-up to the 2018 we offered awhile back. Working a mere 6 hectares spread over some of Meursault's finest vineyards. The name Jobard-Morey is easily recognizable, and winemaker Valentin Jobard is Antoine and Remi Jobards cousin. Valentin's Grandmother was Bernard Morey's sister and married a Jobard after WWII, which is how this Domaine started. Valentin believes his grandfather worked with Francois Jobard, which influenced the winemaking style. Valentin uses a classical approach to winemaking, much like Jobard. This is honestly right there with Antoine Jobard's version and is available for much less; it's a tremendously impressive bottle. Valentin is a rising star using a classical approach to winemaking, much like Jobard, and is an address to keep an eye on as his wines more gain attention. This is a fantastic buy for Prouzots and as William Kelley notes below, a little more refined than the 2018 but with its upfront appeal. A great buy for this vineyard at one of the most reasonable prices we have seen for Poruzots, and if you enjoy the wines from Antoine Jobard, this is worth a look.
Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 92+ points! "The 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Poruzot is showing well after a year in bottle, unwinding in the glass with scents of crisp green pear, almond paste, toasted nuts, citrus oil and light reduction. Medium to full-bodied, textural and incisive, this is tighter knit and more structured than the supple 2018 rendition, but it shares much of the latter wine's charm."
