Tasting Note:

Instantly expressive and generous. A lively, finely-balanced interplay between floral, ripe stone fruits and fresher, more savoury notes of citrus and fennel seed. Flowing, seamless long flavours with a nice zip to the finish. Domaine du Pélican purchased this parcel in 2012 from Jean-Marc Brignot. Prior to Brignot, it was owned by Robert Aviet, a well-known name in Arbois amongst Jura wine lovers. Grand Curoulet is one of the very best terroirs of Arbois. It is a North-facing parcel located on the side of a hill that dominates Arbois and the plaine de la Saône. Grand Curoulet is known to be where the first vines of Arbois were planted. The vineyard sits at around 300 metres altitude, a little lower than En Barbi. The Chardonnay vines are located at the top of the parcel. The soil, made of grey marls, gives the wine extra tension and its Jura character. The crop is lightly crushed before being pressed, and fermentation is in foudres and barrels. Elevage is in 500L barrels with no new oak.
