2009 Caves Jean Bourdy Côtes du Jura Rouge

SKU #1141374 Robert Parker's 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."

Every time I open a bottle of the Bourdy Rouge, I do a snorty laugh-cry. It's sooo good. He's sooo old school. It's my perfect wine. Don't buy this, I want it all.

Oh my God! I love this! A marriage of Trousseau, Poulsard, and Pinot Noir that reminds me of ready-to-drink Premier Cru Burgundy, yet only costs me $25? Sign me up for a case. The subtle, light-bodied fruit is haunting and mysterious, coaxing out all the elements that get me excited about red wine.

France

- 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.
