Domaine Jean BourdyAll products from this vendor
The Burdi family has been involved in winemaking since 1475. Their estates are located in the Jura department, east and south and from the Cote d'Or. Burdi grows grapes of the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Trousseau and Poulsard varieties. It is important to note that they produce some of the best storage wines at the lowest prices in the world. Many critics have compared Bourdy's red (a blend of Pinot Noir, Trousseau and Poulsard) and white (Chardonnay) wines to the excellent Burgundy (often referred to as Montrachet, Gevrey and Chambolle appellations). Despite the fact that Bourdy wines are just as wonderful (sometimes even more wonderful) and similar to Burgundy, Bourdy does not try to repeat them. Bourdy wines convey the character of the grapes and the place where they grew, and also speak for themselves and deserve high recognition - sans comparaison. Bourdy always retains some of the wines of the harvest year in order to offer a more mature wine later. They use the old-school method of winemakers - at first a small part of the production each year is sold at the initial price, and the rest is stored in the cellar after 3-6 months, where the cost of wine rises every 12 months. Thus, Bourdy offers Rouge and Blanc wines, which were produced at the beginning of the last century, but at a significantly higher price.
SavagninAll products from this varietal
Savagnin (not to be confused with Sauvignon blanc) is white wine grape variety with green-skinned berries. It can produce different styles of wines, from refreshing sparkling and fruity whites to intensive oxidative Vin Jaune with nutty bouquet.
Jura is a small wine-growing region in eastern France that is responsible for both traditional and very unique oxidative wine styles. The region is located between Western Burgundy and Eastern Switzerland and is characterized by a wooded and hilly landscape, twisted by the relief of the Jura mountains. In the production of local wines, five main grape varieties are used: three authentic and two international. The first of the local varieties is Poulsard, a red grape that accounts for about one-fifth of the region's plantings. Trousseau is another indigenous red variety that needs a lot of sunlight. White Savagnin is found throughout the region. They also create wines from the well-known Chardonnay and Pinot Noir varieties.
