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.
A characterful and good-value drop from this old family-owned winery, this 100% old-vine (90-year-old) Chardonnay is fermented in ex-Condrieu barrels, then matured for around 20 months with regular topping up. Rich and buttery, it offers tropical notes of pineapple and mango alongside yellow plum and a spicy, mineral tang. Savoury, mushroomy and floral at the end, it combines lovely texture with good acidity. Enjoy this with scallops or roast chicken.
