Formerly known as Domaine François Jobard, then more recently as François et Antoine Jobard, the label changed to Antoine with the 2008 vintage. This has been a family domaine since around 1860 and is currently with its fifth generation. Antione is the only boy from three children of François and Marie-Claire Jobard, and has been responsible for about 5 years since the retirement of his father.

Emphasis here is on vineyard work to avoid work in the cuverie. Short pruning is the major tool, but ploughing and an avoidance of synthetic treatments are also avoided. Theoretically they could be registered as ‘organic’, but the paperwork would be too complicated! In the cuverie most of barrels come from Damy (Meursault!) with a balance of Allier and Vosges with medium-long toasting. Not much is new oak though – perhaps 20% – Antoine is also happy to stay with his ‘standard’ barrel size, he sees no real value for him to experiment with the ‘à la mode’ larger demi-muids. “remember, I’m not looking for complications” he says with a smile! There is little batonnage, and that’s because the wines traditionally stayed 18 months in barrel – it’s closer to 24 months now – so no need to try and speed anything up.
