Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89-92

($95) All stone and minerals on the nose. The richest and sweetest '04 to this point, with impressive fat for the year. The highly spicy flavors of lime and mint build impressively on the back end, which is lush for the vintage. Offers excellent potential.

About This Producer

Francois Jobard creates the epitome of mineral-driven Chardonnay: refined, complex, layered, and limitless. He combines enthusiasm for the terroir of Meursault with restraint in the use of new oak and lees stirring. The result is very traditional Burgundies that are memorable for their graceful steely character and intense elegance. Though understated in their youth, they have an uncanny ability to evolve into extremely fine examples of un-manipulated Chardonnay. Annual production hovers around a minuscule 2,000 cases.

Wine Varietal: Chardonnay

Arguably the best dry white wine grape out there, Chardonnay is grown all over the globe. In addition to being the backbone of fine white Burgundies, Chardonnay is also one of the three major grape varieties used in producing Champagne. Susceptible to a myriad of complications, Chardonnay berries are relatively small, thin-skinned, fragile, and oxidize easily. Chardonnay grapes can be sensitive to winemaking techniques and more difficult to handle from harvest to bottling than many other varieties. Some producers will use malolactic fermentation (where harsher malic acid is turned into softer lactic acid and carbon dioxide) to reduce crispness and acidity and add a creamy, buttery texture to wines. The "oaky" character of some Chardonnays comes from fermenting or aging which takes place in oak barrels. Once barrel-aged, Chardonnay may take on notes of vanilla or toast. While Chardonnay is produced worldwide, the best can be found in France, the United States, Argentina, Chile, Australia, Italy, New Zealand, and South Africa. Typical descriptors for Chardonnay include mineral, green apple, citrus, tropical fruits, vanilla, butter and smokiness.
