DOMAINE DU PÉLICAN - ARBOIS CHARDONNAY 'EN BARBI' 2020

Domaine du Pélican is located in Montigny-Lès-Arsures, in the Jura. The project was born in Taillevent, a Parisian restaurant, where the sommelier blindly served Guillaume d'Angerville (owner of the great domain of Volnay: Le Marquis d'Angerville) a bottle of Chardonnay 2005 from the Jura. Struck by its quality, Guillaume was surprised to discover that the wine was not from Meursault, and even less from the Côte d'Or. This moment was the trigger for an exciting new project. Several visits to the Jura and many tastings later, Guillaume was convinced to buy land in this region. He called on Yves Hérody, a renowned geologist from Jura, to find the best wine-growing sites. This trip lasted three years and resulted in an agreement with the Château de Chavannes in Montigny-Lès-Arsures in 2012 for the purchase and rental of five hectares. Jean-Marc Brignot then sold him five additional hectares and finally, in 2014, five hectares were leased to Jacques Puffeney, a retired Jura legend. The estate is managed by François Duvivier, who heads a team permanently based in the Jura. The 15 hectares of vines are located between Arbois and Montigny with, among others, the Grand Curoulet and En Barbi plots. The vineyard is certified in organic and biodynamic agriculture.
Tasting Notes :
Domaine du Pélican has been farming 'En Barbi' for almost a decade. This extremely special plot is so rich in limestone that it actually looks white! This chalky and mineral-driven Chardonnay oozes with flavors of ripe yellow fruit, chalk, green apple, and toast. This small-production cuvée is a must-have for lovers of Jura, Chardonnay, and all things Marquis d'Angerville.
