Domaine De La Borde Foudre A Canon Nature
Julien Mareschal of Domaine de la Borde makes some of the most enchanting Jura wines we have come across, though sadly the quantities available are miniscule. Julien has 5 hectares of vines on the slopes of the most prestigious Jura appellation of Pupillin and his are some of the highest at up to 550m above sea level. Winemaking is biodynamic with hand-harvesting, native yeasts and minimal sulphur.
Foudre a Canon Nature is Julien's taut and razor sharp Savagnin made in the ouille (non-oxidised) style. Aromas of fine citrus, green apple and hay with hallmark Jura length and acidity and a lovely savoury richness on the finish from long lees ageing.
