Community Tasting Notes (1)

  • The bottle was tempting me too much, had to open it. Soft orange in color. Nutty and sweet smells. A whole lot of everything going on. Bitterness, some acidity, somewhat port-like (but not really), some fruit. Will withhold a numerical rating. Definitely not for everyone, but for those that appreciate wine and the different vintages/history of each, I would definitely say to try.

    (BOURDY Chateau Chalon) 1949

    Dear Friends,

    This is one of the last Bourdy offers we will have and it is a fitting close.

    The 1949 Chateau-Chalon is a wine that lives in infamy in France. There are only a few dozen bottles left in cellar-condition at the estate. This very small parcel comes from this last stash of bottles (never moved from the cellar since release over 50 years ago). The 1949 is about more than just rarity, it is a landmark of significance for the Jura and for French food and wine culture:

    Christophe Menozzi, master sommelier: "Magical color. Nose of sweet honey, pretty; magnificent - above all else. Absolute finesse; Integrated, structured, perfect balance. Stunning - an exemplary wine."

    This wine will arrive in the spring and is only available for shipping via air-freight (no ground shipping on this item)

    VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - EXTREMELY RARE with this level of provenance:

    1949 Caves Bourdy Chateau-Chalon

    It will ship during the spring shipping season.

    Thank you,

    Jon Rimmerman
