SAINT-AUBIN 1ER CRU “SUR LE SENTIER DU CLOU” 2015
POINTS: 90-92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
".....Saint Aubin 1er Cru Sous le Sentier de Clous lost 40% due to frost. The nose is completely different than the Les Perrières, much more austere and mineral-driven, frankly more Burgundy in style. The palate is fresh and focused, just a tiny bit of reduction, but there is commendable weight and focus here. The finish offers delicate walnut and smoke aromas wrapped around good structure and a spicy aftertaste. Excellent." - Neal Martin (Dec 2017)
The Jobard name has long been synonymous with excellence in Meursault. François Jobard’s famous whites, sourced from some of the village’s finest parcels, had a knack for expressing the nuances of each vineyard site, and the wines have a track record of long-term aging—many bottles from the seventies and eighties still provide a textural and aromatic thrill to this day.
The next generation now holds the reins at the domaine, and Antoine Jobard continues to craft taut, mineral-driven white Burgundies with ample body and drive. He has recently set his sights on nearby Saint-Aubin, where vineyard land is much more affordable than in Meursault and yet still provides Chardonnay with a top-class terroir in which to sink its roots. Sur le Sentier du Clou, his first acquisition in the appellation, is a mid-slope premier cru exposed southeast with notoriously stony soils—perfect conditions for experiencing Jobard's mastery through a new lens.
