Founded in 1953, the estate has been certified organic since 1999 and implemented biodynamic practices in 2009. This cuvée, a 50/50 blend of Pinot Noir and Poulsard hails from the red and blue marl, and Jurassic limestone soils, of ‘la Pinte à la Capitaine’ in the Arbois appellation. Harvested by hand and fermented spontaneously, it’s aged for six months in neutral oak, then bottled without fining or filtration, and just a touch of SO2. The nose couples red berries, the perfume of crushed violets, and a hint of flinty smoke. La Capitaine is medium-to-light bodied with fresh supple tannins and very slight effervescence that dissipates fairly quickly. Concentrated notes of bright red cherry, wild strawberry, and orange peel balance finely with savory leather, crushed stone and earth notes. Serve with a slight chill and pair with King Oyster Mushroom Satay, seared and slow cooked pork chops, or a cheese and charcuterie board.
