In 2107 & 2019 the Bornard vineyards were hit by massive frosts and they lost 85% of their crops. So, they made the difficult decision to combine all their Chardonnay and all of their Ploussard into one cuvée for each grape variety. As they were combining grapes they thought they would also pay homage to the people who had contributed in the past including Philippe (of course) and Philippe’s father and grandfather and to use a label from the past which the talented Charlène has updated.

Notes on the producer

Domaine Philippe Bornard is one of the most famous in the Jura. Originally from the village of Pupillin, Philippe Bornard had always worked in the vineyard but sold his grapes to the village cooperative cellar before taking the plunge, in 2005, to producing his own wines On the advice of his neighbour and friend, the famous Pierre Overnoy. The grapes cultivated and vinified from 11.2 hectares on the gentle slopes around the small village, planted with typical Jura grape varieties as well as a "curiosity", a Melon à Queue Rouge, another variety of Chardonnay. Like Pierre Overnoy, harvest is done by hand, and they give respect to the vines and intervene as little as possible in the vinification process. Inputs" are banned and SO2 is only used in a controlled manner at the time of bottling. Long macerations, long maturing in casks, up to 3 years for the whites for example, characterise the fine and delicate wines, vibrant, with precise flavours, also destined for long ageing and playing on an exceptional freshness!

Since December 4, 2017, Philippe Bornard has retired and it is his son Tony Bornard who is now in charge after having bought the family estate and merged into his own vineyard.
