Regarded as perhaps one of the greatest domaines in Southern Burgundy, the Joblot family has been producing fine wines for over four generations. They own 14 hectares of limestone vineyards in four red and two white Premier Cru areas in Givry. Total production is 6,000 cases per annum.
In the 1970's brothers Jean-Marc and Vincenttook over the domaine and since 2012 Juliette - Jean-Marc’s daughter – has assumed control and farms sustainably. Her wines are characterised by elegance, with a fruity, fleshy texture.
There is great emphasis on vineyard management and small yields. Quality is critical for Juliette and she has been known to reject large percentages of harvested grapes if she feels they are not up to standard. The domaine is practicing (not certified) organic and biodynamic.
Of interest too, the domaine pick for acidity rather than ripeness.
Wines are vinified with a high proportion of new barriques resulting in powerful but elegant wines of top class quality with considerable ageing potential. These sought after wines have limited availability.
The Clos de la Servoisine Blanc is limpid gold in the glass. The nose expresses aromas of peaches, tea and lime while the palette is mineral, lively and has a long finish.
