Where and How?
This comes from biodynamically farmed Poulsard vines planted on clay-limestone, facing west. Soils are ploughed with a horse.
The grapes were destemmed, and maceration took place for a month and a half. The wine fermented naturally in fibreglass tanks. The wine was then aged in stainless steel for 7-8 months, and bottled unfined, unfiltered, without sulfites.
The Winemaker: Domaine des Bodines
The winemakes and farmers of Domaine des Bordines, Alexis and Emile, grew up in the Jura. Originally, Alexis had studied petro- chemistry, but took a drastic 180-turn to work in wine instead. He learnt how to farm and make wine with the iconic Domaine de la Tournelle, then did a winemaking and viticulture degree in Beaune. Their own domaine was born in 2010 when they managed to purchase their three hectares in Arbois.
