From: Cotes du Jura, France
Taste: 2018 is so fun right now. Obvious oxidation on the nose but such a smooth creamy texture to the Chardonnay for the wine sees full Malolactic. The slight nuttiness from the large neutral oak barrels. With touching minerality and boy to the wine. A very natural wine with no additions or subtractions and no added So2 just how they have been doing it for centuries. Open now or hold on to - the choice is yours!
Pairing: Aged Comté, fried chicken, Aosta Valley ham, almond trout, roasted chicken with morel mushrooms & cream sauce, croute au morilles (toasted baguette with wild mushrooms in cream sauce with parmesan), croute au morbier (toasted baguette with morbier cheese melted), fertile combos au Jambon (ham and comte cheese wrapped in puff pastry), coq au Vin Jaune… you get the idea. When in doubt, go for something containing cheese and bread. With butter & comfort in mind, we’re going to share a traditional recipe for our pairing suggestion today, Trout Almondine.
About. Caves Jean Bourdy is one of the oldest domaines in the Jura. Created in the late 1400’s, the Domaine is now run by brothers Jean-Phillipe and Jean-François, the 15th generation of winemakers at this estate.
The Bourdy’s grow their vines on 10 hectares of land, including a half hectare in Chateau Chalon AOC. Caves Jean Bourdy makes wine the old fashioned way, using old barrels—some as much as 80 years old—for fermentation and aging of the wines.
The Domaine is known for its extensive library of old wines, with reds dating back to 1926 and whites dating back to 1911 (1865 for Chateau Chalon). The Domaine was certified biodynamic in 2006, and the combination of some of the best terroir in the Jura and careful and patient winemaking results in wines that thoroughly express the land on which it is grown.
