The hail affected mostly his Bourgogne Blanc and En La Barre vineyards, the Premiers Crus being largely spared. These are superb wines in 2013, not least because Antoine Jobard picked between 26th September and 3rd October, before the heavy rains. Few producers in Meursault can match this range for quality, concentration and precision.

Antoine started on 18th September with acceptable yields for the vintage, though not in every vineyard. He lost his Puligny Champgains to hail, for example. Both fermentations passed off without a hitch, and the wines are showing tremendous class. One or two new vineyards are coming on stream between 2012 and 2014, while some of his holdings will be reduced in favour of other family members. A very successful cellar this year.

Jean-Baptiste reports hardly any hail damage in 2013 but the crop was nonetheless limited by cold damp weather at the flowering. He began picking on 26th September, with all the whites picked before the wet weekend. Malolactic fermentation took a little longer than usual but no real problems in the cellar. The wines will be bottled in December, or January for the Premiers Crus.

Philippe Prost, long-time winemaker at Bouchard Pre & Fils, is less flamboyant than his veteran opposite number at Jadot, but he still has firm opinions and he knows the detail of all his vineyard sites inside out. He clearly prefers his 2010 whites to the previous vintage, though we rather liked those too, while the fresh finish of the vintage has brought his excellent 2010 reds to life.

Jean-Baptiste Bouzereau started picking early on 17th September in 2010, continuing over the following nine days as the vineyards ripened. His wines maintain their traditional status as excellent value for money, while the move to his new cellars two years ago has improved the consistency of the range and purity too. The aromatics of this 2010 vintage remind Jean-Baptiste of 2002, but perhaps with greater flesh.
Antoine Jobard started picking on Sunday 19th September and hurried through so as to finish before the rains, announced for the following Friday, arrived. The wines have the same concentration as in Franois Jobards time but a greater purity. There is little emphasis on new oak, with an average of 20% new barrels across the range, leaving the wines to speak for themselves. Everything was fully ripe in 2010 but nothing exceeded 13.3% alcohol, so the balance is certainly there.
Somewhat softer and rounder than Les Tillets, this wine has a little more weight on the mid-palate, reflecting its position on the lower slopes, alongside impressive fruit and length. Jasper Morris MW - Burgundy Director
There are three new cuvées from Antoine Jobard this year: a Meursault not previously bottled, a newly purchased Puligny Premier Cru, and a barrel of Meursault Perrières grown by a friend and exchanged for some Jobard Poruzots. The harvest began on 29th August with healthy grapes, very few treatments having been needed in the vines, which were picked around 12.2% with correct yields around 50 hl/ha. This is a superb address for Meursault which ages with distinction.
