About the Domain:
Saint-Laurent, Montigny-lès-Arsures, Jura, France
“Wines of jewel-like brilliance that effervesce with personality. In our view these stunning new releases firmly place Domaine du Pélican among theJura’s great estates.” Justerini & Brooks, London.
Intriguing and elegant wines made from a dynastic marriage of Jura and Burgundy.
Guillaume d’Angerville, of the famed Marquis d’Angerville (Volnay, Bourgogne), first tasted Jura wine at a blind tasting in Paris and after exhaustive research he decided toembark on a line of Jura wines, purchasing vineyards from Jura wine ‘pope’ Jacques Puffeney. Stylistically Guillaume applies his Burgundian wine-making principles - that is, a non-oxidative approach (where the wine levels are kept topped-up rather than reduced under a layer of flor, exposing the juice to more oxygen) rather than the traditional Jura technique only.
The name ‘Domaine Pelican’ comes from the Pelican found in the crest of Arbois, and they have already gained a steady following, resulting inallocation for these special wines of distinction and character.
