Comment on the domaine from US importers Weygandt and Metzler *

(Peter Weygandt Selections are a near constant feature of top wine journals including Robert M. Parker, Jr.'s The Wine Advocate, The Wine Spectator, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, and Burghound
and, referring to Peter Weygandt :-
"One of the small specialty importers with impeccable credentials as well as a great palate, the unassuming gentleman, Peter Weygandt, does as fine a job as anybody in the business, culling out great wines from France and Australia. His low profile personality rarely generates much noise for himself, but he does not have to given the impeccable quality of his portfolio. Readers who do not have access to Weygandt-Metzler offerings are missing some of the finest values as well as best imports in the United States." – Robert M. Parker, Jr. – Wine Personalities of the Year, The Wine Advocate, 144)

* For a long time we had been seeking the right producer of Chassagne Montrachet - great quality, yet value. I was speaking with a well-known producer in Chassagne and he mentioned the brothers Jouard whose domaine is right across from the church on the Place de L’ Eglise. Vincent and Francois Jouard have some of the best holdings in Chassagne and some of the oldest vines. This family-run estate, taken over by the Jouard brothers in 1990, existed before 1820. Francois is the winemaker and Vincent works in the vines. At 11 hectares (a little over 27 acres), they produce 95% white wines and only 5% red Chassagne-Montrachet. Very attached to their roots and the value of the soil handed down to them by their family, they reject automatic decisions and each task is adapted to each barrel. The same philosophy applies to vineyard work: sustainable viticulture with extensive plowing in order to avoid chemical weeding. The only vines that go into the Jouard estate bottlings are old vines (average over 50 years), therefore Vieilles Vignes appears on every label. All vineyards are entirely hand-harvested and only indigenous yeasts are used in the fermentations. For all the wines, except Batard, Francois uses 1/3 new oak.
