Fine reviews from Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report"

Jomain Family My first tasting on my last trip to Burgundy was Domaine Jomain in Puligny-Montrachet. Although new to our portfolio I have fast come to appreciate the quality at this small domaine.
The 2016 vintage was problematic and quantities were small. Frost decimated some vineyards and in 2016 there is no Batard-Montrachet. But there are some other exceptional whites from Bourgogne to Premier Cru. Today, I feature my four favourites. We have added Bill Nanson's tasting notes to the website.
I also point out what serious value for money these wine are.

Jomain Bourgogne Label
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": 
Parcels in commune of Puligny which are blended. Half barrel and half tank elevage. 
A little more aromatic width, a suggestion of more depth. A little more volume in the mouth too, though with a hint of gas but certainly more dimension of flavour. Some minerality and a leaching sweetness - it's tasting well. A serious bottle here with serious length - needs a little time in the cellar though.

Darren Harris: 
Bourgogne Chardonnay is an unusual beast. In the last few days I have tasted bottlings from Marsannay in the north to Mercurey in the south and numerous in between. None come within a bull's roar of Domaine Jomain's. Why? Location. Jomain's Bourgone comes from vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet. There can be no better place to produce Chardonnay.
The Jomains have several parcels blended to produce this bottling. The wine is made 1/2 in barrel, 1/2 in cask. 20% new oak is used.
Bright nose of lemon and other citrus, spice, minerals and a little toasty oak. Very Puligny-Montrachet with cold white stones. It is bright and fresh. Lively and persistent on the palate. 
I raved about the 2015 (which was sold out by the time I "discovered" the domaine) but I think the 2016, with its cooler vintage conditions is even better. This is a super bottle of White Burgundy and I believe it is superior to many Premier Crus. I was fortunate to secure a good allocation which is already half gone. Stunning quality for the price.

Jomain Perrieres label
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": 
Less attack, more refinement to this faintly spiced and very attractive nose. More depth, more minerality, more intensity - this starts a little less generous than the villages wine, but there is more of everything here. Not an overt acidity, but ingraining flavour and with plenty of balance. Very good - to wait for again. Super length.

Darren Harris: 
Puligny-Montrachet provides a variety of terroirs and wine styles. The Grand Crus and the Premier Crus alongside are rich and powerful. But travel a little further to the north of the commune and you will find vineyards that produce wines that are more delicate and mineral. One of these is Les Perrieres, named after the quarries. Perrieres is a wine of finesse. It is not a blockbuster. It is the dancer of Puligny-Montrachet. Light on its feet yet still absolutely absorbing.
The 2016 Perrieres from Jomain is long, fine and very fresh. Loaded with minerals. It is acid and racy with a gorgeous intensity and persistence. My type of wine. A terrific example of what makes Puligny-Montrachet the go-to commune for White Burgundy.

Les Combottes 2016
Landed Price $189.95
Pre Arrival Price $161.50
Jomain Combettes Label
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": 
Hmm not the largest nose, but a very attractive one - a vibration of minerality here. More relaxed, with a wider panaorama of flavour that melts over the palate - still plenty of rocks in this, very interesting flavour and the easist to appreciate. Delicious.

Darren Harris: 
If the Puligny Les Perrieres is about finesse Les Combettes is about mouthfeel. The vineyard is on the border of Meursault - directly across from Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes and Perrieres. And there are some similarities. Jasper Morris MW says "it shares with its neighbours the plumpness of top Meursault without losing the refinement and mineral elegance of great Puligny". 
Jomain's 2016 is open and quite generous. In addition to the minerality and flowers there is a little (Meursault) honeycomb. It is rounder and fuller, but never losing its acid drive. In the mouth it has more weight but is certainly not heavy. Powerful and long it is a great contrast to Perrieres' elegance.
