Domaine Rémi Jobard Meursault Les Chevalieres

The new age of Burgundy is here! Rémi is on about clean, pure fruit and restrained alcohol without the distraction of winemaking tricks or oak (unusually favouring the more subtle Austrian oak and rare 4000L Fudres). Les Chevalières is just a village wine, but from old vines near the heart of Meursault, it way overperforms in fruit definition, layered complexity and long, fine, chalky minerality. Screw capped at last – we need no longer entrust well-crafted, age-worthy Burg to the inadequacies of cork!
