D'Angerville in Jura: 2019 Domaine du Pélican Arbois Trois Cépages

Posted by Ian McFadden

The 2019 Trois Cépages is very likely the best example of the wine I've tasted.

Simply put, magic happened in this vintage.

A blend of Pinot Noir, Trousseau and Ploussard, the Trois Cépages always has a beautiful harmony and purity. The 2019 stands out for its saturating intensity and lift.

In 2019, Trois Cépages reaches a level of power, clarity, and terroir inflected complexity that we haven't seen in previous vintages. In many ways, the qualities that make the 2019 red Burgundies so exciting are also present in this wine from the Jura region.

Guillaume d'Angerville became obsessed with the Jura after a sommelier in Paris poured him a glass of Chardonnay blind and he was very impressed, believing that it was a Burgundy. This sent him off on a five year search to find a choice location in the Jura. He consulted with a well-known geologist to find ideal vineyards. He named it Domaine du Pélican, a reference to the pelican on the crest of the city of Arbois.

Since its debut vintage in 2012, we've watched Pélican's releases go from strength-to-strength. The 2019 Trois Cépages is jaw-droppingly good. I'm very happy to offer such a startling success.
