Situated in Arlay, in the Jura, the Domaine Jean-Bourdy was created some time between 1475 and 1500. The Boudy name is synonymous with the oldest winemaking families in France: the current owners are 15th generation direct descendants. The vineyard spans 10 hectares in the Côtes-du-Jura and Château-Chalon appellations. Given over to biodynamic farming (Demeter certification since 2010), the domain only uses oak aged between three and four years to age its wines and only seven year old oak for its vins jaunes.
About the cuvée
Domain Jean Bourdy’s vin de Paille is produced from grapes that are harvested then left to dry for three to four months. It then ages in barrels for three years. The resulting wine is a very rare sweet wine that can easily age for more than a century. Exquisite!
