Chateau Chalon & Vin Jaune

One day Napoleon said to the Prince of Metternich: “You really serve the best wine in the world here!”. 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."

This French wine is characterized by subtle hazelnut, walnut, tobacco and often also 'curry' aromas.

In order to be even more accurately informed than most French wine experts, it should be noted that the flavor of this wine is most directly influenced by the flavor of fenugreek, one of the main spices used in preparing Indian curries. Fenugreek is a member of the legume family (like peas and beans) and is used in cuisine in most countries on the planet, whether as a substantial ingredient or simply as a spice. Fenugreek is also used to brew tea and also sometimes for its medicinal purposes.

An excellent vintage with an above-average harvest!

The harvest was delayed by a week in 1943, in order give the grapes the chance to continue to ripen. On the 23rd of October a wonderful Vin Jaune was harvest, which reached a degree of 15.3° on the Oechsle scale: an excellent rating! The quality as well as the size of th ...

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 C ...
