Domaine Philippe Bornard is one of the most renowned in the Jura. Originally from the village of Pupillin, Philippe Bornard had always worked in the vineyard but was selling his grapes to the cooperative wine cellar of his village before taking the plunge in 2005, producing his own wines. Today, Tony Bornard (his son) manages the Domaine, that today has 11 hectares, all distributed around the Municipality of Arbois. In the various rows alternate soils composed of gray, red and blue marls, and schists. The grapes are certified organic since 2005 and Ecocert since 2013.
“There is a purity and silkiness to this wine that makes it quite ethereal. It matches with just about any food you care to think of. Point Barre means “that’s it or period,” enunciated in a shoulder-shruggy take-it-or-leave-it way. All wine and no bull. This plouplou is always glouglou.”
