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 the harvested crop were absolutely satisfying in 1943.

Did you know?

This unique wine is bottled in a unique bottle, squat with a deep punt, called a "clavelin". The bottles are made at the glassworks at La Vieille Loye which has been making these specialist bottles since it gained the concession from Marguerite of Burgundy in 1506. Today, the bottles are no longer hand-blown, but machine-moulded, but they still conform to the same dimensions: each clavelin has a capacity of 62cl (0.62 litres) - based on the fact that for every litre of newly made wine put into barrel, just 62 centilitres is left after nearly six and a half years of ageing. Vin Jaune is the only wine allowed to be sold in France in a bottle of this capacity (a special dispensation had to be gained from the European Parliament to allow for this).

Serving Suggestion

This remarkable dry wine, at its best immensely complex and very aromatic, is best appreciated after at least 10 years in bottle and has the ability, in good vintages, to age for a century or more.

The Domaine Jean Bourdy is a very old winery in the French Jura region. Founded in 1579, the family domicile and business looks back at a longstanding history of wine-making. Today, the business is run by the 15th generation of Bourdy relatives. The Bourdy family cultivates their own vineyards and produces exquisite wines only. The business switched to complete bio dynamic cultivation and production and was awarded the Demeter-badge for organic standards in 2010.
