“Pierre Martin respects the terroir by taking advantage of the blue marl from the Jurassic period to produce pure and fine wines."

Soil Specificity

The soils in the Jura region are composed of Jurassic limestone, red and grey shale, clay and marl-stone. The Jurassic period was named after Jura because the region's limestone mountains are representative of the geological developments which occurred 145 million to 200 million years ago. As a result, two layers of shale, red and grey were covered with Bajocian limestone during the middle of this era.

History / Ethos

Domaine de la Pinte is a family business located in Arbois. Founded in 1953 by Roger Martin, the estate now covers 34 hectares of vineyard rich in the prized blue marl of the Arbois Region. In 1999 the estate was converted to organic farming, followed in 2009 by biodynamic. The attention to detail in the vineyard and the resulting health of the vines is apparent throughout the range of wines. The wines are profoundly expressive, highlighting a domaine at the very top of its game, and deservedly placed among the very best of the appellation.
