Rating: Wine Advocate 92+

In the past 10 years Guillaume d'Angerville from Volnay started to gradually acquire land in Jura. Nowadays he owns 15 Ha between Arbois and Montigny and it's producing some very stylish wines.

The Savagnin is sourced primarily from two parcels: "Au Barby" and "Grand Curoulet." Both sites are considered some of the best for Savagnin because of their old soils rich in Jurassic marl and "terre de gryphées".

The Jurassic marl is very different from the marl you find in Burgundy. The marl in Burgundy is white marl while in the Jura there is gray and blue marl.

Domaine du Pelican's Savagnin is fermented in 500L barrels and ages in neutral 350L barrels for ten months.

Organic, Biodynamic.
