Domaine des Bodines, Poulsard, 6 Bottle Case
A nigh-on perfect growing season has left this practically weightless, with so much bright, characterful red berry fruit. The most gentle of chills should serve this well
Domaine des Bodines is the work of Alexis and Emilie Porteret, who unlike most in the region do not come from winemaking backgrounds but were bitten by the winemaking bug while working dull desk jobs elsewhere in France. They now farm just 4 hectares of vines dotted around Arbois and Pupillin which they hope to convert fully to biodynamic practices in the coming years, their work is however already meticulous mainly in thanks to this duo’s past work with Jurassien organic pioneers Domaine de la Pinte and Domaine de la Tournelle. We can hardly think of producers anywhere who produce such reliably delicious, soulful wines.
