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
This fresh and quaffable Poulsard, ripe, red, tangy fruits, delicious aromas of sour cherry and pomegranate, and herbal notes on the nose. It's beautiful, vibrant red. It's drinking really, really well right now. The texture is flower petal soft and the finish is full of zesty cranberry fruit.
Grape: 100% Poulsard or Ploussard
