Galant des Abbesses is still produced according to the original recipe – from the 16th century. 






At this time, Château Chalon's vineyards were owned by an abbess who conjured up the recipe for this special wine and concluded with the following: “this is our chivalrous wine”.  The must that flows from the wine press flows into a copper cauldron where 25 special spices are added in precise dosage.  The wine is then heated over low fire to let the wine adopt the various spices' subtle aromas.






This whole procedure lasts an entire day.  Afterward, the spiced grape juice is filled in a cask already 1/3 full with Vieux Marc from the French Comté or Fine.  This wonderful mixture is then let to age for at least 3 years. 






This wine is described by leading wine experts as incomparable, extraordinarily exotic, and complex.  An experienced palate will notice Indian and Asian spices in the wines' flavor structure – a one-of-a-kind dessert wine.  This wine received 19 out of 20 points two years in a row (2006 and 2007) in the renowned wine magazine guide Fleurus!






Galant des Abbesses should be served as an aperitif or with dessert.  If you would like to enjoy it with dessert, we have a few recommendations for you:  Galant des Abbesses pairs extremely well with chocolate cake or some nutty baked goods. In summertime, you can let raisins infuse in the  wine overnight in order to pour over some vanilla ice cream the next day – simply wonderful!






Pears and figs are also good options with which to infuse your gallant wine, and this is just the beginning:  create your own, unique dessert!

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.

Serving Suggestion

This wine should be opened a few hours before enjoying it. We recommended drinking it at a temperature between 16 and 18° Celsius. You can also age Côte du Jura Rouge for up to 50 or 60 years, perhaps even longer. But even when you decide to enjoy it in a timely manner: this wine harmonizes wonderfully with all sorts of sausage products, raclette, grilled meat, game, stews and casseroles, and couscous.

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.
