2015 Jomain Freres Meursault Les Tillet
Meursault, situated just north of Puligny-Montrachet and south of Volnay in Burgundy’s snaking slopes that comprises the Côte de Beaune, is the source of some of the finest Chardonnay in the world. This wine is plucked from the lieu-dit vineyard of “Les Tillets,” which is a stone’s throw upslope from the famed Premier Crus. Expertly crafted by Jomain Frères, this favored site delivers all the crisp freshness and distinct minerality of upslope examples with the density and concentration of its neighbors to the south. A stunning wine that delivers all the character of a beautiful Premier Cru, the price-to-quality for this wine makes it an opportunity you do not want to miss.
The Jomain family has been crafting world-class wine from the Côte de Beaune since their vigneron father, Marc Jomain, passed away in 1992. Winemaker, Christophe Jomain, is focused on a pure expression of terroir and practices minimal intervention and restrained use of oak, at 25% or less new French oak, which lends a purity of fruit and a transparent representation of Chardonnay that is simply stunning. The wine undergoes extensive bâtonnage of lees during malolactic fermentation then is racked, fined and returned to barrel. The wine is then bottled with little to no filtration. The resulting wine drinks far above its price point and is destined for even further greatness in the years ahead.
Jomain’s 2015 is a bright yellow-gold with green reflections at the rim, with a concentrated, perfume nose of yellow apple, citrus pith, white peach, raw hazelnut, fresh cream, and crushed stones. There’s a perfectly ripe, deep core of fruit presented with perfect tension and mineral grip—one of those young whites that’s exceedingly attractive right out of the gate but also clearly built to last.
