In 2107 the Bornard vineyards were hit by massive frosts and they lost 85% of their crops. So, they made the difficult decision to combine all their Chardonnay and all of their Plousard into one cuvée for each grape variety.
They did not want to use the Bornard branding prominently because the wine is a combination of Ploussard from a number of vineyards, including Tony’s.
As they were combining grapes they thought they would also pay homage to the people who had contributed in the past including Philippe (of course) and Philippe’s father and grandfather and to use a label from the past which the talented Charlène has updated. - Importer Note
Tony started his career been working with his father and then studying winemaking at University before spending time in broadening his winemaking experience in Australia.
He then secured vines in one of the most iconic spots in the Jura, namely around the huge "Pupillin" sign in the centre of the Arbois-Pupillin appellation area. From these vines he is currently producing a single Chardonnay cuvee, a delicate Pinot Noir and a light red made from Ploussard (Pupillin is, after all, the world capital of Ploussard).
