Les Argiles Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2017

Honeyed lemon peel; yellow flowers, ripe juicy Macintosh apple, less of the lanolin and hay that I’d expect from CB and more of petrol/petrichor. Delicious either way. Mouthwatering acid with a round texture. — 8 days ago

Clos Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2012

Intense. Surprisingly rich and broad. A punch of rock pool then deep sweet fruit. Intense, mineral and long. Atypical raveneau as it’s a bit of a monster but Awesome quality, depth and length. I guess why Clos is the thing. — 3 days ago

Domaine Antoine Jobard

Les Tillets Meursault Chardonnay 2017

Pale color; good sulfides with a hazelnut rather than burnt matchstick aromas; pear/white peach flinty notes. Great tension and concentration . More linear than fat but a totally compelling Meursault. — 12 days ago

Domaine Jobard Morey

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2018

Coming from the old quarry behind the Perrieres premier cru area. Very aromatic nose of white fruit, some mint and a touch of oak it seems. The palate is round, rich, mineral and intense, yet with energy and a lot of precision of flavours, i am sure in a blind tasting that the friends would call a much higher level wine, at minimum a Meursault Villages, what a great success from Valentin Jobard.

Vignes provenant de l’ancienne carrière derrière le fameux premier cru Perrieres. Vin très aromatique, menthe, fruits blancs, une touche boisée mais de façon judicieuse il me semble. Attaque et bouche ronde avec une tension appuyée, quelle texture et des saveurs franches et précises, belle énergie. Bien curieux à l’aveugle de voir ce que les amis prédiraient, bien meilleur que son niveau, superbe. J’en veux d’autres! 90-91 à ce niveau.

Love this Monopole. Sick nose of confectionary fruit, mid season cherries, sour cherry, bright and lifted with limestone mineralIty. Gorgeous but has more to say. Palate is so supple and succulent. Elegant and balanced with awesome purity and freshness. Energetic and super pure. Awesome palate presence and incredible refined tannins. Just impeccably well made. Dynamite. — 17 days ago

Just beautiful. Super fresh and pure, layered and elegant. Drinking really well in its youth, floral on the nose, crushed berry, violets, cracked pepper, iron and iodine on the palate. Singing after an hour decant. A feminine expression and a memorable bottle. — a day ago

Cuvée de l'enfant terrible Côtes du Jura Poulsard 2016

L’enfant terrible de Jean-François Ganevat. Poulsard at its best, fresh and light but with a strong sharp personality! Not such a bad kid, actually extremely polite and sensitive... but opinionated. — 11 days ago
