Description

Les Tillets is located at the very top of Meursault, high up near the tree line on shallow, rocky soils. It's a prized spot and one that Jobard shares with the infamous Domaine Roulot.

Wines from this Burgundy high country are known for their laser precision and rocky minerality. Jobard's tiny 0.66 hectare parcel delivers both these characters in spades but you'll also find depth of stone fruit, citrus and intense concentration. The nose is a heady mix of white flowers, salt and struck match. It's an exceptional expression of an exceptional, and rare, site.

Is there anything better than great white Burgundy? Answers on a postcard.

Jobard now owns 0.66 hectares in this fine terroir. The vines, now approaching their 30th year, are rooted in stony, white clays, high up on the slopes above Meursault. Les Tillets is in fact at the very top of the slope.


As you might expect, this is a much more racy, high-grown, rocky, saline expression of white Burgundy. Even from a warmer year this is a beautiful wine of great purity, with a twist of smoky reduction promising even greater pleasure down the track.

93 Points - “The 2018 Meursault Les Tillets comes from 0.66 hectares of vine. It is tighter and more backward on the nose compared to the En La Barre, and slightly earthier in style, with flinty, chalky notes reluctantly unfolding.

The well-balanced palate delivers good concentration on the entry and notes of orange zest, white peaches and a healthy dash of lemongrass. Great tension and wonderful spiciness surface on a finish that is more outgoing than the aromatics at the moment. Excellent.” - Neil Martin (Vinous)

91 Points - “Bright and precise, Jobard's 2018 Meursault Les Tillets exhibits aromas of citrus oil, white flowers, beeswax and fresh bread. Medium-bodied, elegantly textural and dynamic, it's a pretty, mineral wine from this higher-altitude, hillside site.” -William Kelley (The Wine Advocate)

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
