A small 6-hectare estate spread over some of Meursault's finest vineyards, Jobard-Morey is easily recognizable, combining two of Burgundy's famous families. Winemaker Valentin Jobard is Antoine and Remi Jobard's cousin, and Valentin's Grandmother was Bernard Morey's sister and married a Jobard after WWII, which is how this Domaine started. Valentin's grandfather worked with Francois Jobard, influencing the winemaking style, so he employs a classical approach to winemaking, much like his cousins. This is right there in quality with Antoine Jobard's version, which is available for much less and is a tremendously impressive bottle of Charmes. Valentin is a rising star, and his domaine is an address to keep an eye on as his wines garner more attention. We have only been able to offer a few vintages from Jobard-Morey before, and the 2020 is the best example of Charmes he has made yet. A late release at the most reasonable prices we have seen for Charmes this vintage; if you enjoy the wines from Antoine Jobard, this is certainly worth a look, and compared to the current going rate, it's a great buy.
Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 94 pts! "There are seven barrels of the 2020 Meursault 1er Cru Charmes, the finest wine I've tasted to date from this young producer. Wafting from the glass with notes of crisp Anjou pear, lemon oil, tangerine, white flowers, wheat toast and nutmeg, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, with a layered, muscular profile and a long, precise finish. Only 175 cases made!"
