Wine Jean Bourdy - Vin de Paille 2002 Straw Wine 14% - 37.5cl
Out of stock
A very dry and mild beginning to the year remains until March, which brings with it a few frosts. A dry spell follows until mid-May, and June brings hot temperatures. July and August are almost chilly, and it rains heavily until the beginning of September. Thereafter the beautiful weather returns which allows the grapes to develop to a beautiful ripeness. There were as good as no vine illnesses this year whatsoever.
Immediately after the first tasting, the cellar master claimed outright: this wine is unbelievably good! This vintage displays light nuances of candied fruits combined with orange syrup and a fine honey flavor, all produced from the fields of the Jura. In fact, this incomparably complex vintage contains much more: it creates a positively inexplicable explosion of various aromas in the nose and on the palate. An unforgettable experience!
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).
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.
