Domaine du Pélican Arbois Grand Curoulet 2018
Domaine du Pelican is the Jura project of famed Volnay producer Guillaume D’Angerville of Domaine Marquis D’Angerville. 2018 is the first vintage of the single vineyard Chardonnay from Grand Curoulet. This plot is considered one of the best terroirs of the Arbois and believed to be one of the first vineyards planted in the area. When acquiring the land in 2012, Guillaume D’Angerville’s vision was to salvage and bring life to the 60+ year old Savagnin vines. But in 2015 he replanted this small five hectare vineyard to savagnin and chardonnay, two-thirds and one-third respectively. The Chardonnay comes from the top third of the plot and is north-facing allowing the grapes to mature slowly and develop complexity. The resulting wine is full of ripe and clean fruit character with marl-tinged minerality.
