Domaine de la Borde Ad Infernum et Salutem
Grapes: Pinot Noir, Trousseau
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.
Ad Infernum et Salutem is Pinot Noir and Trousseau from Arbois Pupillin vinified without sulphur or other additions. Pure and open with earthy blueberry and currant aromas, exquisite texture and intense cranberry acidity.
