Tony Bornard Au Fil des Generations

Tony Bornard Au Fil des Generations


Country: France

Region: Jura

Grapes: Chardonnay

Vintage: 2017

Tony Bornard is the son of legendary Jura producer Philippe Bornard of the eponymous Domaine. Tony took over the running of the whole estate in 2017 but continues to bottle his own more experimental cuvees under his own name, all of which are vinified without any filtration or sulphur additions at any stage.

Au Fil des Generations is Chardonnay made from a blend of all of the Bornard's parcels, a consequence of the very low yields from this severely frost affected vintage. The result is rather spectacular with typically crystalline Jura structure, tightly woven texture and a combination of apple, citrus, hay and spice aromas.
