EXPOLORE THE RANGE OF DOMAINE PELICAN WITH WINEMAKER ON VIRTUAL TASTING
Domaine du Pélican is based in Montigny-lès-Arsures near Arbois, in the Jura region, between Burgundy and Switzerland. The Domaine was established in 2012 as a partnership between Guillaume d’Angerville, of Domaine Marquis d’Angerville in Volnay, and his longstanding régisseur in Volnay, François Duvivier. The wines are vinified, barrel-aged and bottle-aged at the estate. The holdings, as in Volnay, are mercifully close together, which is a blessing, given the biodynamic viticulture exercised.
At half the size of Chablis, Jura may well be France’s smallest wine region, but it’s definitely one to watch. With a variety of styles and a combination of international and indigenous grapes, Jura’s popularity is growing, particularly among affluent, trend-seeking wine drinkers.
Join Guillaume d’Angerville and François Duvivier to discover the story of the domaine, on Wednesday, 7th October 2020. If you order in advance you can even drink along.
Arbois Chardonnay Domaine du Pelican 2017
SGD65 per bottle
Some plots are covered by limestone rocks from erosion of the Revermont Mountains. The wine is bright, rich and ripe, with a dominance of stone-fruit. There is a fresh acidity which keeps the wine fresh and sharp in this warm year. Vinification takes place in oak casks; ageing is in 350L and 500L foudres, 5% being new. A small part is aged in stainless steel tanks.
Arbois Savagnin Ouille Domaine du Pelican 2016
SGD65 per bottle
This is ripe on the nose with stone fruit and exotic fruit. It has the unmistakable nut and dry fruit character. On the palate there is an intense bouquet of sweet spice and ripe apple. The wine was still cloudy, with a high level of sugar still remaining. It was an explosion of white flower aromas. The berries are lightly crushed before being pressed and then fermented in barrels and botti.

Rich spice covers the palate, rather hedonistic. Darker in colour than the Pinot Noir, it remains fresh, despite a greater depth of fruit and broader tannic shoulders. It could easily become your go-to wine for a relaxed meal. All the fruit comes from the Clos StLaurent, alongside the winery, where the three varietals are co-planted. The blend is 60% Pinot Noir, 35% Trousseau and 5% Poulsard.
Arbois Poulsard Domaine du Pelican 2017
SGD70 per bottle
A mixture of lightness and intensity. A little taciturn and edgy at first, though a fair bit of aeration reveals a wine laden with earthy forest floor, crushed peppercorn and cured meat characteristics with a jewel like red berry sweetness sitting in the background.
