"This is a domaine that has made great progress since it began domaine-bottling less than two decades ago. For lovers of fresh, elegant Chardonnay, gently oaked and with crisp, balancing acidity, this is a source well worth seeking out." Remington Norman and Charles Taylor MW The Great Domaines of Burgundy
Domaine Vincent and Francois Jouard are located in Chassagne-Montrachet. It is a reasonable sized estate with just over 10 hectares of vines. The two brothers took over the domaine upon the death of their father in 1990 and it was only in 1996 that they began to bottle their own wines. Even today, the 4 ha of red grapes are sold off to negociants as the Jouards prefer to focus on their elegant white wines.
The domaine has a lovely range of Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Crus (including the rare Clos de la Truffiere) all which I tasted earlier this year. They are wines of great style with
andfull flavours balanced with vibrant acidity. They are classic Chassagnes from the terrific 2010 vintage.
