Jobard-Morey

Valentin Jobard

In the very heart of Meursault, one of the most iconic appellations for rich and complex Chardonnays, the young Valentin Jobard is running the show. His cousins are Antoine and Remi Jobard, and his grand-mother was Bernard Morey’s sister. With such an inheritance comes a lot of pressure. But Valentin is probably one of the most promising young winemakers in the area.

But Valentin is probably one of the most promising young winemakers in the area. 
After many generations, his family managed to gather 6 ha exclusively in this appellation. This kind of secrets and off-the-radar estates are challenging to find as agricultural land is getting more expensive in Burgundy.

Unfortunately, after his grandfather passed away, the estate has been left a bit neglected, and when Valentin took over, it was like a second birth. He is now trending in an organic direction. 

His winemaking style is quite classic. Whole bunches are pressed for a few hours, settled overnight and barreled down with lots of lees in oak from Tonnelleries Rémond, Bethomieu and Ermitage, some 25% of which is new. They see one year in wood and two to three months in tank before bottling to digest any dissolved oxygen, but Valentin experimented with a full 24-month élevage in barrel. 


His wines are medium to full-bodied, concentrated and textural with depth and satiny. The lively acidity balances with the fruitiness.
