The Marquis d'Angerville is not only one of the most talented winemakers in Burgundy, he is also one of the most prestigious in his farming practices. Domaine du Pelican is actually a project in the almost isolated eastern region of Jura. After having been heavily inspired by Jura wine (more specifically a glass of Tissot Arbois Chardonnay ‘Les Bruyeres’ 2005) after thinking it was true white Burgundy, he sought to discover Jura for himself. The wines made at Pelican are by all means Jura, but with a Burgundian approach, as he does not use an oxidative style. The farming is all done with no chemicals and cellar work incorporates a pristine sense of detail.
This wine is all about its blending of all three of Jura's classic red varieties. The result is a light bodied, red-fruit driven, elegant red. The wine has been made since the beginning of the domaine back in 2012. The fruit comes from recently acquired vineyards that have never seen a chemical. The raising of this wine is completed between both Burgundy barrels and large barrels.
