Tony Bornard Le Gentil Blanc


Country: France

Region: Jura

Grapes: Savagnin

Vintage: 2018

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.

Le Gentil Blanc is Tony's top cuvee, an orange Savagnin fermented and aged on skins for a month. A charming and enagaging expression of Jura's star grape brimming with ripe apricot and melon overlaid with more savoury nougat, hay and preserved citrus.
