Anthony Jobar Meursault Blagny 1er Cru 2014


Côte De Beaune-Burgundy, France 750ml |13% ABV  Grape Variety: Chardonnay Boutique Wine

  The 2014 Meursault 1er Cru Poruzots really delivers on the nose in terms of definition, intensity and focus. Here, there is real mineralité and tension, a sense of drive that derives from the earth. The palate is very well balanced with citrus fresh fruit, orange zest and a cheeky touch of passion fruit. There is an exotic side to this Poruzots, tempered with a keen line of acidity and a long persistent finish that fans out beautifully. Great wine, Antoine! (NM)   (12/2015)

  A deft application of wood sits atop the ripe green fruit, apple and grapefruit-scented nose. There is much more volume, size, weight and muscle to the big-bodied and overtly powerful flavors that are less mineral-inflected but compensate by delivering even better length on the moderately rustic finale. This concentrated effort is a classic Poruzots. *Outstanding*   (6/2016)

  The Jobard family has three parcels in Poruzots, and Antoine noted that most of the hail damage was in the parcel by the road in this vineyard, with the other two parcels higher up on the slope barely touched by the hail. They lost thirty percent of their production in Poruzots as a result of the storm on June 28th. But, as two of the parcels were not touched, the wine shows no ill effects in terms of energy from the storm, offering up a complex and vibrant bouquet of apple, orange, hazelnuts, a lovely vein of minerality, a touch of iodine and a gentle framing of vanillin oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, complex and shows off lovely mid-palate depth, with excellent mineral drive, bright acids and lovely backend energy on the long and very classy finish. Fine juice. (Drink between 2016-2030) 92+   (11/2015)

  Very pale color. Ripe aromas of yellow peach and spices, with a complicating note of eucalyptus. Concentrated but firm-edged, and distinctly less fruity today than the Blagny. This very taut Meursault will need patience; it will merit a higher score if it gains in pliancy with bottle age. (ST) 90+   (9/2016)

Pairs well with meaty stews and hotpots.  Also delicious with creamy cheese and cheese dessert.
