Jean Bourdy Vin Jaune Château Chalon 2012Regular price €73,50
Jean Boudry is almost the pope of the vin jaune. This Château Chalon is so rare that it is sought after worldwide by lovers of oxidative wines. This wine is literally and figuratively special. The bottle alone, called 'clavelin', is a small bottle with a special size and a specific measure. The reason is the loss by leaving the wine in barrel for 7 years and 3 months without refilling. As a result, the wine begins to oxidize and a natural 'voile' develops, which protects the rest of the wine. A very natural process. Jean Boudry works very authentically and has also been certified biodynamic for a long time. In the nose notes of spices, inlaid yellow fruit, zest of citrus. On the palate, an oxidative touch perfectly intertwined with spices, yellow fruit, floral undertones, nuts and elegant acids that make you long for more. When you taste this with a piece of mature Comté cheese and close your eyes, you imagine yourself in heaven for a moment ... We have a number of bottles available especially for lovers of this type of wine. health!
