100% Pinot Noir

Jura, France

Soil: Blue, red, and white limestone-clay marls

Fermented in steel and aged entirely in used barrels, the Pêcheurs’ Pinot Noir combines varietal silkiness and delicacy with a hint of the Jura’s telltale mineral twang; and, as with all the domaine’s red wines, it impresses with balance and freshness rather than depth of color or richness of structure.

About the Winemaker:

The Domaine Pêcheur began producing wine in 1976 from a single hectare of vineyards.  Located in Darbonnay, in the Cotes du Jura appellation, the domaine is owned by Christian and Patricia Pêcheur who, since its inception, have worked diligently to improve and expand production of classic Jura wines.  Now, the domaine extends over eight hectares with vineyards primarily situated on the hillside slopes of the villages of Darbonnay and Passenans with an extension into the fabled town of Voiteur for the production of Château-Chalon.

Christian was schooled at the Lycée Viticole in Beaune after which he returned to the domaine in 1992 to produce the family wines.

The vineyard work is conducted according to organic principles but the domaine is not certified organic.  Neither pesticides nor herbicides are utilized.  Grapes are hand-harvested.
