The quality of the wine from 1942 is sensational. Even when many of the vine branches were destroyed in the 1940 frost and never quite regained their fullness, and also contrary to early worries during the winter, the harvest crop was of ample size. The Vin Jaune 1942 from Château Chalon displays a beautiful, golden color and an alluring, balanced sensation on the nose. A wonderful flavor excites the palate with a grandiose, complex finish. An excellent vintage!

Did you know?

One day Napoleon said to the Prince of Metternich: “You really serve the best wine in the world here [Johannisberg]!”. Reacting to this comment, the prince stated that “the best wine in the world doesn't come from here on the Johannisberg [Johannes mountain], but rather from a small town in your kingdom named Château Chalon.”

Serving Suggestion

Firstly, the wine should be opened three to four hours before it is to be consumed, in order to let its diver range of flavors awaken. French connoisseurs recommend decanting the wine as well. It's also important to know that vin jaune should be consumed warmer than a typical white wine. It is best served at between 15° and 17° Celsius and therefore just a bit under room temperature. With which dishes should I serve Vin Jaune? Trout, poultry, smoked fish (like haddock for example) with an accompanying cream sauce, are all wonderfully complimented by Château Chalon. This rare wine is also uniquely suited to complimented Asian or Oriental dishes that contain curry spices. Jean Bourdy recommends consuming Château Chalon with foie gras, scallops, and lobster. We also recommend, however, that you enjoy this special wine on its own – accompanied by some Comté cheese and a few walnuts – in order to let the unique aromas affect you. If you don't have Comté cheese available to you, good substitutes are Gruyère, an old Gouda cheese, or another old, Dutch hard cheese.
