La Barde 2018
A Wine That
shows the world why Jura is the place to be right now (physically or metaphorically). Similar to the great whites of Burgundy but with more freedom and a wild side, this is the wine version of Grace Slick performing at Woodstock.

Where and How?
This comes from a well-known lieu dit, La Bardette, in the Sud-Revermont area of the Jura. These are very old vines (90yo!) planted on red clay on top of hard limestone, home to fossilzed seashells.
The wine ferments naturally and is aged in 228L regular old oak barrels for two years.
The Winemaker: Allante & Boulanger
Christian Boulanger and Mathieu Allante's domaine in the Jura is one of the most exciting recent natural wineries to have splashed onto the scene. Based in Rotalier, the duo are just around the corner from Jean-François and Anne Ganevat. Previously, Christian worked with the Labet family for fifteen years, and now the two have set out on their own. They have been collecting several enviable small plots of old vines, including some with the very rare Petit Béclan grape variety. They make beautiful, elegant natural wines without added sulfites.
