Domaine du Pelican is Volnay producer Marquis D'Angerville's property in the Jura, comprised of vineyards inherited from retired legend Jacques Puffeney.
Importer Grand Cru says:
"Montigny-les-Arsures is the capital of Trousseau, much in the same way Pupillin is the capital of Poulsard. It also happens to be the village where Domaine du Pelican’s winery and this Arbois Béranger parcel are located.
This single vineyard Trousseau is made from the parcel that Jacques Puffeney farmed and made his Les Bérangères Trousseau from. Domaine du Pélican’s Trousseau is made with a deep respect for his work and in appreciation of his trust in them working his holdings. 2018 was the first vintage made.
The soil in Béranger is alluvial and silt over grey marls, just stony enough to allow for good drainage. This soil composition is particularly beneficial for Trousseau. The vines are over 50 years old and have a south and southwest exposition.
The wine is aged in 228L and 350L barrels with no new oak."
