Guillaume d’Angerville has created one of the Jura’s foremost estates: Domaine du Pélican combines the winemaking experience of a great Burgundian dynasty with terroirs acquired from a rollcall of Jura legends, including Jean-Marc Brignot, Robert Aviet, and Jacques Puffeney.
Overseen by François Duvivier, Guillaume’s long-time estate manager at Marquis d’Angerville, biodynamic farming and a lightness of touch in the winery results in thrilling, elegant wines that Guillaume wants to be “drunk, not tasted”.
Savagnin is famed for making Vin Jaune, Jura’s oxidative speciality, but here it is produced in the ouillé (“topped up”) style. Herbal freshness is balanced by ripe fruit and a reductive minerality, giving a wine that is as powerful as it is precise.
Textural but precise, showing spiced fruit notes and a smoky reduction.
