Domaine De La Borde, Pinot Sous La Roche 2019
Special Jura! This Pinot Noir from Julien Mareschal is from fruit grown on a steeply sloped Sous La Roche vineyard around 500m above sea level. Precise, elegant, and fresh AF the wine is bursting with pure red cherry and nutmeg aromas, grainy minerality, and an incredibly balanced finish.
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.
