2007 Caves Jean Bourdy Côtes du Jura Blanc

SKU #1141375 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 ...there are certainly fascinating scents and flavors here running in a fungal, nutty, and apple-y as well as rather adamantly mineral direction. I would be inclined to drink this over the next couple of years, although Bourdy insists it has considerably longer potential.  (6/2012)

K&L Notes

Producer details the Wine Advocate: "Wines from Jean-Francois Bourdy's small cellar in Arlay have been trickling into the world's wine markets with increasing regularity over the past decade (though there is a history of these wines in the U.S. even before World War II), causing considerable waves, an American fan club having accumulated, with buzz centering understandably around the Bourdys’ huge assortment of vintages spanning well more than a century. What I tasted on the occasion of my November visit, however, was (with one memorable, antique exception) a small collection constituting the estate's most recent releases rather than library wines, and whose quality was fine if not extraordinary. There can, however, be little question that Bourdy is very serious about achieving high quality the hard way. He was certified biodynamic in 2006, and he insists that what he and his brother Jean-Philippe are bottling today from the family’s 25 acres of vines will stand the test of time just as well as have the ancient wines on which he claims to – 'with no adaptation,' as he puts it – explicitly model his contemporary vinification."

Additional Information:



- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
