Domaine Joblot2015 En Primeur offer
As in the south, 2015 was a fabulous vintage, one which any fan of Burgundy should buy across the region. The growing conditions were as close to perfect - plenty of sunshine and, when needed, enough rain to help the grapes grow and ripen at just the right rate.
South of the famed - and increasingly expensive (perhaps even overpriced) - Cote d'Or, the Chalonnaise can be a source of some great bargains. There is a lot of hit and miss here but that's true of all of Burgundy and prices here are far more accessible (although getting hold of anything truly good below £20-25 per bottle is virtually impossible these days, even here). The only wines that compare, pricewise, with the best of the Chalonnaise are, perhaps, basic Bourgogne Rouge from a top grower in the Cote de Nuits.
So, why Domaine Joblot? Quite simply, it is the best the Chalonnaise has to offer. Year after year, Jean-Marc and his family make a range of 5 reds and 3 whites, mostly from Premier Cru vineyards, which are consistently excellent and show why Burgundy at its best is so very good. Clives Coates puts it unequivocally: 'This is Givry's best estate' putting it down to controlled harvests, old vines and sophisticated use of oak. Jasper Morris MW describes this estate as 'a leader in Givry'.
