2018 Philippe Bornard Vivre d’Amour et de Plouplou

Jura, France

Tony Bornard has produced a still red wine in 2018 from the very good harvest they had from their Les Gaudrettes vineyard in the commune of Pupillin. An excellent wine made from grapes that were picked reasonably early (6th September). Tony wanted to make an easy-to-drink wine and he certainly succeeded. The body is light as you would expect from an early-picked Ploussard from Pupillin and the alcohol is correspondingly low at a mere 10.5%.

About the maker

Philippe Bornard has developed an enormous global following after consecutive years of outstanding vintage after vintage. Their wines are now mostly by allocation globally.

How did these wines become the hottest property in bars, bottle shops and restaurants around the world? It's anyones guess, but Domaine Moissenet-Bonnard produces mouth salivating and exceptionally crafted Chardonnay, Savagnin, Ploussard, Trousseau and Pinot Noir. With over 27 years of experience, Philippe is working with nearly 6 hectares of 30-year old vines, and farms exclusively biodynamically - officially certified in 2012. The grapes are grown at high altitudes, on limestone and clay soils, allowing a slow ripening. Typically the wine begins a long, slow maceration in fiberglass, and then is moved to large older oak barrels for maturation, which lasts about one year. Wines are of two appellations: Côtes du Jura and Arbois-Pupillin.
