Wine Jean Bourdy - Vin Jaune AOC Château-Chalon 2005 13% - 62cl
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.
