Wine Jean Bourdy - Côtes du Jura Blanc 1990 12.5% - 75cl
The temperatures are unusually mild during the end of January and the beginning of February – in a few French cities, the thermometer reads 20°! It cools down again, however, but is still above 10° in many locations. The heat wave begins all over again in May, when it is a striking 30° in the shade in northern France!
It cools down significantly during the end of May, and the weather is actually colder than it was in January. But the good hot weather comes right back by the 1st of June. One week later it rains heavily over almost all of Europe. The first twenty days of June are characteristic by below-average temperatures, but which are then more than overcompensated for during the end of the month. In August the temperatures rise even higher: between 37 and 38° Celsius in most French cities. In September the temperatures drop rapidly and a dry spell begins which contrasts the frequent rain in the previous months. Stormy weather unfortunately arrives on the 2nd and 3rd of October, unfortunate circumstances just before the harvest.
This wine can be distinguished by its intense, golden color. The elegant impact on the nose is quite intensive, and this still relatively young wine offers a pleasant contrast on the palate from its older vintage counterparts!
Did you know?
Caves Bourdy are the oldest producer in the region, with a direct family line going back to the 16th century. Their cellars contain the oldest collection of vintage Château Chalon and Cotes du Jura in existence, with some wines going back to the 19th and even 18th century. We work exclusively with Jean-Francois Bourdy to occasionally make limited numbers of these irreplaceable old vintages available to discerning collectors. All wines come direct from Bourdy's cellar to our own, and so are in perfect mint condition.
Open the bottle a few hours before the first tasting, and drink at an optimal temperature between 15 and 18° Celsius. We recommended serving this wine with the following dishes: warm appetizers, cheese fondue, mussels and fries, seafood, fish served in sauce, smoked fish, sauerkraut, and cheese. You can let this wine age for an entire lifetime (100 to 150 years), but after one taste you won't want to drink anything else for the rest of your life!
