Savagnin, Domaine des Bobines, Emilie and Alexis Porteret, Arbois 2017
Domaine des Bobines, Emilie and Alexis Porteret
Emilie and Alexis Porteret are not from Jura winemaking backgrounds, but have embraced both the place and the profession with great enthusiasm. Having relocated from the Doubs department, this young couple gave up other careers to pursue winemaking. Domaine des Bodines (3.2 acres) was established in 2010 after Alexis spent several years working part time for Pascal Clairet of Domaine de la Tournelle and Bruno Ciofi of Domaine de la Pinte. He credits both of these excellent winemakers with having taught him the benefits of organic and biodynamic vineyard work, as well as how to work well and naturally in the cellar. T
Savagnin from the Poligny parcel, which is gorgeous, rounded out, wine already. Nutty, but with almost tropical fruit as well. It is the first vintage that these vines have been farmed fully biodynamically, and there is an additional mineral charge. Alexis said that he has noticed the biodynamic regime forces the roots to go a lot deeper than they were when he bought the vineyard, which had previously been sprayed with synthetic treatments.
