Joseph Dorbon 2017 'Les Bernardines' Vieilles Vignes Rouge, Arbois, Jura, France

Joseph Dorbon’s setup is simple: three hectares of organically tended vines on prime south-facing slopes above his home village of Vadans; a horse to help him plow; and a subterranean 16th-century cellar in which his soulful wines slowly take shape.

Winemaker: Joseph Dorbon

Farming: Organic

Varieties: 80% Poulsard and 20% Pinot Noir

Terroir / Soil: Sourced form 60+ year old vines in yellow limestone-clay marls. “Les Bernardines” is a vineyard in Vadans named after the Bernardine order of Cistercian monks who stewarded the land during the Middle Ages, and Joseph owns Poulsard and Pinot Noir vines within its confines. 

Winemaking: Co-fermented in stainless steel without temperature stabilization. Following total destemming and a short cold soak, wine ferments spontaneously in stainless-steel tanks. Cuvaison lasts c. 14 days. Wine is racked following malolactic and remains on its fine lees prior to bottling. 

Aging: Two full years in old Burgundy barrels

Tasting Notes: This cuvée fresh, drinkable and exactly what we've come to love about the lively red wines of the Jura-- light in tannin, juicy with sappy red fruits, and punchy and bright to pair with an array of foods for the table.
