Antione Jobard Meursault Blagny 1er Cru 2017
27 Jan 2020
After the persuasive 2016 vintage (https://www.finewines.com.sg/francois-et-antoine-jobard-meursault-blagny-1er-cru-2016/), I was somehow shocked and disappointed with the 2017 version. Bouquet of very faint lemon skin implying a bit of bitterness. Body was lime driven quite contrasting to what the bouquet was telling me. The problem was that, it was very inverted triangular taste, initially with big and buttery fruits to boot, but slowly it tapered down to be less tasty, and finally it just vanished beneath the palate without penetrating the tongue. I think vintage was in play, and perhaps 2017 wasn’t a Meursault vintage.
