* Please note that because there is limited stock of this wine it is not subject to any further discount. 

“La Chamade” literally means ‘wildly’ but in the context of the pounding of the heart when drinking a good wine. Darker in colour than other wines made from this grape, long on flavour and with a soft and silky mouth feel. There is an earthiness about this wine but the finish is reminiscent of cherries that have been lightly spiced. The grapes are macerated for three weeks in fibreglass tanks and the wine is then aged in one of the large wooden foudres that line his winery for a year before the wine is bottled.

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.
