Under the radar: Gorgeous Chassagne-Montrachet from Domaine Jouard

Jouard Header Radar

"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. 

 

To date they have slipped under the English wine press' radar. But I can tell you from experience they make tremendous wine. We frequently drink the wines at home.

The domaine has a lovely range of Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Crus (including the rare Clos de la Truffiere). The wine style at the domaine combines vibrant acidity with minerality with a medium weight palate. The wines are not heavy, but there is plenty of serious extract from the very old vines. They are complex and delicious. I am a great fan.

We have very little 2010 left and have made the wine into 3-Bottle Tasting Packs. We have only 6 Packs (and a few single bottles) available so be quick. Offer expires midnight Sunday 12 May 2013. These are seriously good wines!
