Vin Jaune Arbois, Domaine de la Borde, Julien Mareschal 2012
Domaine de la Borne, Julien Mareschal, Arbois
Julien Mareschal established Domaine de la Borde, in the appellation of Arbois-Pupillin in the region of Jura, in 2003. The domaine grows a variety of classic Jurassic grape varietals, and the majority of the vines are more than 30 years old, most having been planted back in the 1980’s. This particular cuvée « Caillot » is 100% chardonnay grown on a rather steep, south-facing hill at 550m altitude, and harvested manually, as all the grapes are. Destemmed at 80% and then racked and fermented in barrels, aging on the lees for approximately 24 months before being bottled.
Grape: 100% Savagnin
