Domaine du Pélican

Jura • France

Guillaume d’Angerville had been lunching at Taillevent in Paris when he tried a bottle of Tissot Bruyères blind. Given the greatness of the wine, Guillaume was inspired to see what might be done in the Jura. He spent three years searching for the perfect property and finally found it in 2012, when he met with the owner of Château Chavanes, who biodynamically farmed 5 hectares of vines. They subsequently came to an agreement, and Domaine du Pélican was born.

The 5-hectare Grand Curoulet vineyard was added next, and in 2014 Guillaume was offered the lease on the estate of the “Pope of the Jura,” Jacques Puffeney, rounding out Guillaume’s current 15 hectares of exceptional holdings in the Jura.

The wines are made with indigenous yeasts, with a focus on freshness. With his longtime partner François Duvivier, Guillaume is making precise, transparent wines in Montagny-lès-Arsures in the Jura.
