This cuvée has been made since the beginning of Domaine du Pélican, in 2012. It is sourced from several different parcels of vineyards located in Arbois and Montigny-les- Arsures which sit atop hills in soils that are marl-based at an elevation of 400 m. Fermentation takes place in barrels and foudres (5% new) for about 30% of the crop.

Arbois Chardonnay is a white wine showing aromas of almonds, peach and lemon on the nose. Fresh, complex and elegant attack where creamy notes are well balanced by the acidity and minerality of this wine. Hints of vanilla in the long and clean finish.

I liked the bottled 2018 Arbois Chardonnay better than the unbottled sample I tasted last time. It's a neatly made Chardonnay with some toasty and spicy notes, a little creamy, nicely textured, more Burgundian that most examples from Jura. The wine is tasty and finished with a salty note, with integrated oak and the signature of a fine winemaking team.
