Domaine Joblot - Juliette Joblot dégustation
The Domaine Joblot is an essential reference of the Côte Chalonnaise. The Joblot probably produce the best Givry wines, which are highly sought after by amateurs. It is Charles Joblot, the originator of the PDO Givry, who writes an important page in the history of the vineyard : the agricultural land then used for polyculture is transformed into a vineyard. Charles's son, Jean-Marc Joblot, took over as head of the vineyard in 1979.

One of the few oenologists who graduated in the 1970s, when the winemakers were trained "on the job", he used his precious knowledge to modernize his vineyard. What a success! Sure of him and extremely sharp, Jean-Marc Joblot elaborates the wines he loves and stresses that "the important thing is to achieve the desired result, having defined its objective". And for that, you have to give yourself the means: quality of the tannins and freshness of the grapes to the harvest. The grapes are harvested early enough, in 7 to 8 days maximum. This is what gives this inimitable freshness to the wines of Domaine Joblot. For Jean-Marc Joblot, the wine is made in the vines. Once harvested (the date of harvest is decided according to the multiple tastings of berries), the grape is vinified with the least intervention possible. "Every time we intervene, we take away something from quality," he hammered.

But Jean-Marc Joblot is not alone in his approach. His brother Vincent joined him in 1986 and the roles are naturally distributed: Jean-Marc in the cellar, and Vincent in the vines. He lives on the edge of the village, right in front of them. "Vincent is our weather station," says Juliette Joblot, daughter of Jean-Marc. As you can see, the Joblot vineyard is above all a family story. And it is the last generation that gradually takes over the reins of the vineyard. For from her 30th birthday, Juliette Joblot, enologist by training, is the current director of the vineyard since 2012.

With her experience in South Africa and La Courtade in Provence, Juliette continues the family tradition on the reds while imposing her more modern and less wooded style on the whites.
