It is always exciting to receive a Pinot Noir from the Jura, and even more exciting when it is supplied by Tony Bornard. It is useful to remember that Tony’s vineyards are only an hour’s drive from the centre of Burgundy, so it is not surprising that Pinot is grown there. It was brought up the road from Burgundy hundreds of years ago and has developed its own character with the different climate and the different soils and the different yeasts that are found in this region. This is a very supple wine with good fruit and some length. It is a perfect wine for roast lamb or roast chicken.
