All wines stored at 55° and 70% humidity
Pélican has been farming this parcel since 2012. En Barbi is a south-facing plot sheltered from the winds by an amphitheater of hills. The soil is Jurassic marl, so rich in limestone that it appears white. Francois Duvivier believes that the large amount of marl contributes more minerality, volume, and length than a “classic” soil of clay and limestone. They vinified En Barbi separate from the other plots for several years and, starting with 2018, bottled it as a "single-vineyard" cuvée.
About Domaine du Pélican
Guillaume D'Angerville is at the helm of one of Burgundy's elite and storied estates in Volnay, with roots dating back to 1507. His arrival in the Jura was initially met with skepticism from the locals. A Burgundian coming in search of vineyards to purchase was not something those in Arbois were thrilled about. However, Guillaume's true fondness for the wines and the history of the small region revealed itself quickly. He made it clear his goal was to bring worldwide awareness to the great and incredibly unique wines of the Jura.
Several properties were subsequently purchased, and organic and biodynamic viticulture was implemented immediately. Included were the famed holdings of Jacques Puffeney, who had recently retired. We've offered the Domaine du Pélican Jura lineup since the first vintage in 2012.
