Domaine Claudie Jobard, Demigny
2016 Burgundy En Primeur
Burgundian vines and wine-making are part of Claudie Jobard’s DNA. Her mother Laurence was for many years head winemaker at Joseph Drouhin, and her family runs a nursery which multiplies vines for replanting top vineyards throughout Burgundy.
Since 2002 Claudie has been making her own wines in Rully, and from 2011 took over responsibility for additional family vineyards, producing superb Bourgogne rouge, as well as tiny quantities of First Growth Beaune and Pommard. 2016 is the sixth vin-tage we have shipped, and her wines have become established, bench-mark favourites with our clients. She is thrilled with her 2016 whites, which encapsu-late their origins – arguably more so, she feels, than is the case with the sun-drenched 2015s. Both white and red Rullys offer mouth-watering value for money, as does the Bourgogne Milliane.
