Wine Region: Jura, Pupillin - France
Grape: 100% Ploussard
Tasting notes: Biodynamic. The nose is pure blood orange and dried roses, with an herbal-balsamic edge (pine needles) and an animal hint. The palate is very light, ethereal and quite acidic with some fine tannins towards the end, as well as a clear volatile twist that lifts the wine up. This is a light and refreshing red.
About the Winery
Domaine de la Borde is a tiny Jura estate in the appellation of Arbois-Pupillin that makes excellent, high-character wines. Winemaker Julien Mareschel might not have much space to work with, but he certainly makes the most of it.
Three and a half of the domaine's five hectares are dedicated to growing white varieties (Chardonnay and Savagnin), with the remaining hectare and a half going to red (Trousseau, Pinot Noir and Ploussard).
Half of the vines are more than 30 years old, and the other half were planted between 1985 and 1990, and the estate is entirely organic/biodynamic since 2012.
A unique terroir, strict hand-harvesting of the grapes, and a meticulous vinification process ensure the wines have a distinct sense of place—not to mention the kind of nuance and head-turning character that adventurous palates are always searching for.
