Domaine De La Borde Sous La Roche
Grapes: Pinot Noir
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.
This is Pinot Noir from the steeply sloped Sous La Roche vineyard 500m above sea level. Elegant and fresh with pure red cherry and sweet spice aromas, chalky minerality and great tension.
