Domaine de la Borde / Julien Marechal
Without question one of the most interesting domaines from the coveted region of Jura. Julien Marechal studied in Burgundy for a period of time before turning to the Jura to make wines on his miniscule 5 hectares where the age of the vines vary between 7 and 77 years. He produces Ploussard, Trousseau, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Savagnin, and they all contain bundles of energy and a proper slatey, rocky and smokey Jura expression.
The quality is through the roof, and we often find ourselves turning to Julien’s wines when we want to impress family and friends.
