    Fresh and lithe with sappy red-cherry fruit. The palate sees an extra boost of concentration from the 60+ year old vines, and the wine blends gentle structure with vivacious drinkability in very harmonious fashion.

    Product information

    Joseph Dorbon initiated his work as “vigneron” in 1996.  He works three hectares of vineyards situated in his village of Vadans, six kilometers north of Arbois and across the Route Nationale from the fabled town of Montigny-les-Arsures.  The vines are hillside plantings, southeast facing, at approximately 1,000 feet of altitude (322 meters).   Dorbon works his vineyards following the best ecological practices and is now recognized as on the path to organic classification (“en conversion biologique”).  The soil is worked, turned effectively twice a year, the second time in June with the aid of a horse.  Vegetation is essentially left in between the vineyard rows with the weeding done only underneath and immediately around the individual vines.

    produced from a mix of Ploussard (60%) and Pinot Noir (40%) which are co-fermented.  The wine is then aged in stainless steel for one year and one year in 225 liter barrels.  A single vineyard wine, the Bernardines site is within the confines of the village of Vadans.
