Our estate is located in the commune of Mercurey, which gives its name to the famous Burgundy appellation. As a family, we cultivate our 1.8 hectare vineyard, which makes us one of the smallest vineyards in the appellation. The climate we enjoy is very special compared to other French wine-growing regions: we have ideal sunshine and perfect humidity in winter. The vineyard's grape varieties are typical of the region with Pinot Noir, which represents the vast majority of the vineyard, and 0.3 hectares of Chardonnay for confidential vintages, our Pinot Noir is made with the Bondue Premier Cru appellation. The perfect balance between the clay-limestone soils and the bouquet of red fruits gives very fruity, round and balanced wines. We harvest by hand, ferment the juices in our wooden vats and age our wines in oak barrels.

Our story

The story begins in 1946 when Pauline Jobard inherited a house located on the Place de Bourgneuf. Since the French vineyard had been ravaged by phylloxera, Domaine Jobard had been abandoned and cows were grazing there. Pauline then plants vines and fruit trees to be able to trade and maintain the house she inherited. In 1976, Jean-Pierre, son of Pauline and Louis, then professor of financial management at the University of La Sorbonne, took over the domain and developed the business commercially. 2004, Sophie and Wilfrid Bourland took over the domain and contributed to the building.

Other little stories

With a cultivation area of only 1.8 hectares, Domaine Jobard Bourland is one of the smallest vineyards in the prestigious Burgundy appellation of Mercurey. Under no circumstances should you miss the tasting of their white wine: it is produced on a plot of Chardonnay no bigger than half a football field.
