Broad & Mineral

The Baud estate dates back to 1742. Today, ninth generation vignerons Clementine and Bastien Baud are making some of the best-value wines in Jura. This unique wine region is a narrow valley in the remote hills between Burgundy and Switzerland that was once covered by an ocean millions of years ago. If you kick a stone in a Jura vineyard, it will probably be a fossil!

Controlled oxidation at its finest. A beautiful juxtaposition of vibrant fruits aromas and nutty oxidative flavours. The Domaine Baud 'Cuvée Flor' presents an intense range of flavours, boasting concentrated honeysuckle, ripe apricot, candied meyer lemon, sourdough, honeycomb, and freshly grounded cloves. The wine attacks the palate with mouthwatering acidity, followed by citrus flesh, bruised golden delicious and burned honey, intensely mineral, with a nutty and umami finish.

Pairing Suggestions: comté cheese, cream-based baked fish, seafood, raclette, and poultry.

About the Winery

Domaine Baud Père et Fils

The history of Domaine Baud dates back to 1742, and it wasn't until 1950 when René Baud, the 7th generation, rebuilt the vineyard which had suffered from the phylloxera crisis and two World Wars.

Starting with only 4 hectares, the vineyard progressively expanded to 20 hectares with the help of successive generations. Now, managed by siblings Clémentine and Bastien, the 9th generation, the estate continues to flourish and grow, with a strong commitment to sustainable viticulture and preserving the traditions and style that makes the wines of the Jura so unique and incredible.

The estate achieved the Terra Vitis certification in 2014 for its eco-friendly work and environmental preservation.

Powerful, lively and spicy with concentrated tangy citrus and pear fruit with some saline notes and tangy apple and lemon on the finish. Lovely intensity here with some crystalline citrus fruit.
