Tasting Notes

This is another Pinot Noir from Tony Bornard. It is useful to remember that Tony's vineyards are only an hour's drive from the centre of Burgundy, so it is not surprising that Pinot is grown here.

This is a more serious Pinot Noir than his early drinking Le Pinot Ctambule 2015, which we received last October and were showing at Rootstock 2016. The vines are about 25-30 years old growing in black and red marl in a parcel just near the famous Pupillin sign you can see as you drive along the N83 from Poligny to Arbois.

During maceration Le Pinot had a little pigeage and pump-over so it is slightly more extracted than Le Pinot Ctambule. This wine was aged in a single 400 litre barrel.

- 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).
