Best Enjoyed: Duck, goose, game birds

 

And for a more robust read, 

Pinot Noir with no added sulphites from Jura has a beautiful ruby colour. The nose is balanced, the palate is soft and drinkable with flavours of ripe fruit bursting out from the glass. Just a touch of appley acidity.

 Certified organic farming, by Ecocert. No fining, so suitable for vegans and vegetarians. 

Short story: Alexis and Emile were both born and brought up in the Jura region, Alexis had studied petro-chemistry, but in he realised that he did not enjoy this subject, so he went to work at a wine estate in the Jura region- at the natural wine-making estate, Domaine de la Tournelle. He then studied for a wine-making and viticulture diploma in Beaune, he worked in several other wine estates and then they both then created their own wine estate ‘Domaine des Bodines’ in 2010 by buying a house in the very centre of the town of Arbois with three hectares of vines attached to it.
