Domaine des Bodines Arbois Pinot Noir
Grapes: Pinot Noir
Emilie and Alexis Porteret of Domaine des Bordines have a small holding of vines in the blue marl soils on the edge of Arbois. Alexis cut his teeth at the highly regarded biodynamic Domaine de la Tournelle nearby and employs similar farming principles at Bodines, eschewing fining, filtration, sulphur or other additions.
This is their sumptuous Pinot Noir, quite Burgundy-esque in style with deep, dark fruit, smoky bonfire spice and a touch of volatile acidity on the herbaceous finish.
