BURGUNDIAN LEGEND MARQUIS d'ANGERVILLE GOES TO JURA
Guillaume d'Angerville's love of Jura wines began with a single bottle of wine. He recounts, '"I tasted this bottle blind in a restaurant in Paris that I often go to. I always tell the sommelier to give me something blind and the only rule is that it has to be outside Burgundy. When he brought me this wine, I said, 'You forgot the rule, you brought me a wine from Burgundy.' And he said, 'I am afraid you're wrong.'" When d'Angerville migrated eastward to the Jura and planted an outpost here, taking over the legendary Jacques Puffeney's estate vineyards, it was clear to the wine world that this was a place to which attention should be paid. Having one of the greatest names in Burgundy to create Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the Jura truly has taken the region to another stage. While sommeliers and natural wine nerds have habitually gravitated here, these wines have gained the poise, precision, sophistication that demands for you all to pay attention. These wines are très classique and in a recent blind tasting, the Savagnin had me gushing adoration for over five minutes as I wondered how someone had taken everything I love out of one of my favorite Burgundy producers and blended it with high end Savenniéres. The reds demonstrate everything you love in high end Burgundy at a fraction of the price point: sophistication, minerality, and finesse. - BK

From Grand Cru Selections:

After much deliberation Domaine du Pélican has decided to produce a 100% Pinot Noir cuvée for the first time from the 2018 vintage. The team resisted until then because they were concerned that they would perhaps not master the vinification of Pinot Noir outside of Burgundy. It is made mostly from their Clos Saint Laurent parcel that is located just behind the winery and sits at an altitude of approximately 350 meters. The soil is made of fallen rocks ("éboulis calcaires") of Bajocian limestone over grey marls (Lias) and the vines are between 10 and 45 years old.
