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.
The wine marries both Jura terroir with Burgundian winemaking for a truly delicious and charming Chardonnay. Winemaking does not use any oxidation, making for a nonclassic style of Jura wine. This ages in ten months of neutral barrels before it it released.
