From: Jura, France
The history of our estate begins in 1742, with the arrival of Jean-Francois Baud who settled as a taskmaker in the Vernois. The family house, then housed all subsequent generations, already listed in the communal archives before the French revolution of 1789 and who lived in the era of polyculture.
In 1950 René BAUD, 7th generation, reconstituted the vineyard that suffered greatly from phylloxera and the two world wars. It exploits 4 hectares of vineyards. In 1978, with the arrival of the 8th generation, the Domaine took off again: Jean-Michel and Alain formed the Gaec Baud Père & Fils. A hard and tireless work that has allowed them to gradually expand, from 4 to 20 hectares, with 38 crops to their credit. Jean-Michel is in charge of the management of the vineyard and Alain of the winemaking and the commercial part.
On January 1, 2015, Bastien and Clémentine returned the torch of the 9th generation at only 22 and 24 years old. Bastien then took care of the management of the vineyard and winemaking, Clémentine of trade and management. Since their installation, the Estate has already expanded over 2 additional hectares. It's a new chapter that begins...
Tasting Notes: The nose is fruity, concentrated and offers a fine richness as well as a slightly tight grain. It reveals notes of cassis, plum and small notes of red fruits associated with hints of white pepper, spices and an imperceptible hint of flowers. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, a bit gourmand and offers a good definition, a small mineral frame, a good volume, a fine suavity as well as a fine acidity (in the background). On the palate this wine expresses notes of plum, ripe red berries and small notes of cherry associated with fine touches of cassis, violet, spices, tonka bean as well as a very discreet touch of cardamom, liquorice and gunflint. Tannins are slightly mellow. Good length.
